"User Shell Folders" messed up by default in registry. Where to modify in AD ?
Posted on 2009-04-07
When I create a new user (in an W2K3 AD), it seems to give wrong values in this user's profile.
I don't know where to check in AD - I'm pretty new in AD environments
The user can't create anything on his desktop for example.
I found out the registry entries in "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders" were pretty bad: instead of having standard %USERPROFILE%\blah directories, some of them (example : Desktop, Personal) contain a wrong path, like D:\blah\user.
When I correct it manually on a computer, everything runs fine again.
Where can I check/fix this in the AD?
