Permissions From Folder Redirection
Posted on 2009-03-30
I have set up a 2008 DC with roaming profiles and folder redirection. All workstations are Vista Business.
I figured out how to get access to the profile folders from the Administrator Account with a group policy setting. However, I am not having any luck getting to the data from the folder redirection. The Administrator does not have access to those folders which is a problem when you are trying to run a backup.
One thing I tried to do is have the folders redirect into the same profile folder ( hoping the GP for the profile would apply). But, no luck. The only thing I can do is take ownership of the folders as an admin. However, when I do that, the users/workstations can not longer gain access to the data even though the the security permission say that they can.
I need the administrator account to be able to view and copy the data from the redirected folders for backup purposes.
Any advice would be appreciated.
