Folder Redirection after Rename
Posted on 2008-06-23
I am having problems with folder redirection at one of my branches. We had to do a server rename of the branch server. After the rename I went into GP and made the change under folder redirection for the OU to the new server. Since then about a third of the people at that branch are being redirected fine. The others are getting an error message when they loging saying they are unable to access their desktop folder. The error is showing the old server name instead of the new one. I have tried doing a GPupdate /force, have had them reboot, but nothing seems to work. I even tried pulling them out of the OU that is tied to that policy we are still getting the error.
We are running Windows Server 2003 Standard Edition with Windows XP SP3 Clients.
This is the error message appearing in the log on the client PC.
Event ID 107 Source Folder Redirection
Failed to perform redirection of folder Desktop.
The folder is configured to be redirected from <\\old_servername\users my documents\andrear\Desktop> to <\\new_servername\users my documents\andrear\Desktop>.
