On our LAN we have a GPO that redirects the My Docs folders to the users home folder.
I have a couple of PCs that will always be offsite and I want to prevent the LAN users My Docs folders from redirecting when they logon on those PCs only.
I thought all I had to do was create an OU for these PCs and put a loopback policy with a setting to redirect the My Docs to the local profile (as per the MS KB 328008). However this does not seem to work. I have tried putting the redirect in the same policy as the loopback and in a seperate policy in the same OU.
When I look at the results in using Group Policy Modeling the normal policy is being applied to the user account and not the loopback one. Actually logging on confirms the GPM results are correct.
The loopback is set to replace, but I have also tried merge with no success.
I know I must be missing something but I am not sure what.
