My Documents Redirection on Windows Server 2008

I installed Windows Server 2008 on a virtualized enviroment. While designing my GP's I found that Folder Redirection does not work on my Windows Xp machines. Even when "Also apply redirection policy to Windows 2000, Windows 2000 Server, Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 Operating systems" is checked.

Any help will be appreciated.

On the Windows XP machine, log in to an account of a user that you would expect to have the redirected document policy applied to. Then run the RSoP Wizard (can be added as a Snap-In to the MMC) in logging mode and make sure the policy is actually being applied.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Please be more specific in what you mean by "the desktop folder is moved correctly but no my documents". Does that mean the *policies* are being applied correctly?

Can you post the output of the RSoP Wizard?

Well, if I go to Resultant set of policies I can see that the Desktop is set to be moved. I don't see the My documents folders as set to be moved , but because they both are set in the same GP I assume that the policy is been applied correctly. Also, I can see the Profile with Desktop and Documents folders created on the path that i defined to be moved on. But when I open the Documents folder  I dont see any content on it, so it means that My documents folder on my Win XP computer is not been synchronized with the one that is on that network path and that i defined on the Policy. What i see is the Desktop folder properly synchronized and an emty Documents folder. Also if I go to My documets folder on the Win XP computer I can see that it's path points to the local computer and not, as in the case of the desktop folder, to the network path.

Thank you very much for the articles, in the first one it explains the appropriate permissions that the shared folder should have, and that precisely was the case. I had to reset the permissions on the share and it solved the problem.
