If I edit the Registry key for the NetCache\Shares and remove the DWord Values on client PC they will be recreated and I cannot figure out where they are coming from.....tried to disable (not use My Document Redirection) but same result....cannot load several needed pieces of software onto CEO's (who else's) computer since the \\server1\users\my documents is not available.......Yes Server1 is offline, Yes tried to use the GPO to enforce policy, yes have lump from banging head into desk for several hours.....BTW...only on server2 is the My Documents Folder referencing \\server2\users\...
