MyDocuments and Desktop mapped to network share... but mapping doesn't always kick in.
Posted on 2008-10-11
Windows 2003 SBS Server, recently setup as DC and file server for 12 users.
Users have local profiles. Allusers have their MyDocuments and Desktop mapped to server user shares, using the AD group policy. Works beautiful, the user goes to MyDocuments, the addressbar shows "\\MainSever\User\FrancoisL\My Documents\", and there's all the documents.
The problem: Francois just got a new workstation. Plugged it in, installed all software, joined domain, logged him in, go to MyDocuments, and I get... "C:\Documents and Settings\FrancoisL\My Documents\"... why?
