Terminal Server Folder Redirection
Posted on 2009-04-21
I created a network share on my domain controller "\\server\termdata$" Share permissions = everyone (full), ntfs security = Administrators (full) Creator/Owner (full)/System (full)/Domain Users (read/write/travers - this folder only). I enabled all Files + Optimization on share caching for offline use.
I do have roaming TS profiles setup via group policy and the local profile cache is automatically deleted upon logoff. This is working great, but the logons are slow, so i am attempting folder redirection.
I set folder redirection for App Data/Desktop/Documents to '\\server\termdata$" (exactly like this).Went go computer>admin...>system>group policy>enabled folder redirection policy "allow processing....". Set synchronize files logon and logoff to enabled. Closed GPO, ran gpupdate /force on terminal server. Then logged on a test user which is an authenticated user, and no redirection. I logged on several times, waited for a bit to see if synch just took a while, enabled slow link detection to 500kbs, and still no dice. reboot, tried again, didnt work still, set domain user to full read/write/modify access on share, and still no luck. All the mean while roaming TS profiles was still functional using the same GPO.
Any help would be awesome!
