Custom Folder Redirection Admin Template

I have been trying to create an admin template that performs folder redirection. When I try and implement the template it shows up under the admin templates, but I am unable to see any options that can be changed. Also when I click on the policy in Group Policy management and go to settings to view the report of the selected settings the values that are contained within the template are not visible.

I have also tried logging on as user that the template is applied to and the application data appears to be redirected but the My Documents is not. I have included a copy of the template that I have created.

Does anyone have any ideas why this is not being applioed correctly as I am unable to see any errors in the event logs. I have also done an RSOP but it is not picking up the user when they are logged in

The admin you've created is writing to a registry outside of the "Policies" subkeys, which means the policy will "tattoo" the registry. You'll have to change the View > Filter menu and disable "Only show policies that can be fully managed" to be able to see and configure these settings.
You cannot see Group Policy settings after you imported a custom or third party ADM template

I have disabled that and I can see that it is showing that it is 'not configured'. I have changed this to enabled and it has started to work.

Thanks very much for your help :)
