My documents redirection
Posted on 2009-04-24
This might be a bit complicated.
AD 2003 Domain, 1 tree forest, XP Pro Workstations
User Configuration (Enabled)
Setting: Basic (Redirect everyone's folder to the same location)
Path: \\%ServerName%\users\%username% (%servername% is actually not part of the path the real server name is)
Grant user exclusive rights to My Documents -> Enabled
Move the contents of My Documents to the new location -> Enabled
Policy Removal Behavior Leave contents
Issue: User's folder not redirecting to correct location (local instead) and not changeable.

I think since the user isn't the owner, and the policy says exclusive rights are to be assigned its not redirecting to correct location, & that if the user was the owner, it would.
BUT, why would the path on the workstation be grayed out, and unchangeable? Its this way even for those people who ARE redirecting correctly.
