Folder Redirection Errors 101 & 1085 in Terminal Server event log.

Posted on 2008-11-03

I am getting Folder Redirection error 101 and Userenv 1085 error for only 1 of my 20 users that login to my Terminal Server.  
Error 101 states that it failed to perform folder redirection.  Error 1085 just reitterates the point that Group Policy client side extension folder redirectioin failed.  
I can't figure out why I am getting this at all.  I have set up the server's local group policy where it only allows local user profiles and prevents roaming profile changes from propagating to the server.  
Any ideas how to fix this 1 person?

    The issue is because the securities on the redirected folders have not been set.
    Say you are redirecting the "My Document" Folder, you need to have the appropriate permissions on the physical directory as well as the share (if a share exists).  The redirect is unable to create the redirected directory in the file system as the user does not have the permissions to their own directory or at least create rights to the base directory.

    Even though the folders shouldn't be redirected at all?
    Furthermore, is it the folders on the terminal server or on the local computer?

    Have you set a policy to re-direct the folder?
    If this is on a terminal server, it is a permisions issue to the users own directory.

    Don't know how it happened.  She had the correct permissions on her redirected folders, but somehow she wasn't the owner.  
    I know...  I'm not even going to ask.  I keep finding odd things like this.
    Anyway - Thanks a bunch for your help!
