Group Policy - Administratively Assigned Offline files

I have been trying to setup offline files for My Documents and no other files or folders. I believe that I need to specify this in the Administratively assigned offline files section of the group policy. The issue that I have is that my user profiles are set over different servers and also they are saved in different folders on the servers. This means that I would have to probably have to specify over thirty different locations. Is there anyway that I could use \\%HOMESHARE%%HOMEPATH%, so that its picks up ther profile path from active directory opposed to me specifiying multiple locations?

You should be using Folder Redirection for the My Documents folder as a best practice. If that is the case, the redirected My Documents folder will be automatically cached on the local machine, no matter which server that redirected folder is located on.

I have sorted it out. It seems that ssomeone has entered a DO not allow profile caching through the workstation configuration policy. Thanks for your help :)
