Problem with GPO Folder Redirection
Posted on 2009-03-31
I have created a folder:
Shared that folder giving "Authenticated Users" contributor access and then changed the security to also include Full Control.
Then I created a GPO and linked it to the domainname.local
The GPO 'target' tab is as follows:
Setting: Basic - Redirect everyone's folder to the same location
Target folder location: Create a folder for eac user under the root path
Root Path: \\server1\Users
The example it says is:
For user Clair, this folder will be redirected to:
\\ server1\Users\Clair\My Documents
Then on my vista machine which is connected to the domain I do: gpupdate /force
That asks me if I want to log off, which I do.. Then I log back in, but the 'Documents' folder is still pointing to my local machine not the server. The event log error is as follows:
Failed to apply policy and redirect folder "Documents" to "\\server1\Users\user\My Documents".
The following error occurred: "Can not create folder "\\server1\Users\user\My Documents"".
Error details: "Access is denied.
Log Name: Application
Source: Folder Redirection
Event ID: 502
ToFolder \\server1\Users\user\My Documents
Error Can not create folder "\\server1\Users\user\My Documents"
ErrorDetails Access is denied.
Domain Controller is Windows SBS 2008 x64
Local machine is Vista Business x86
It appears to be a permission issue.. but what more do I need to give than Full Control permissions to Authenticated Users?
