I am taking over a small network managed by SBS2003 Standard and no access to the previous network administrator. How can I find out:

1) if a specific pc was configured as it should using the http://server/connectcomputer wizard or if it was added manually to the domain like on a regular Windows 2003 server

2) if user folder redirection is active or not for a user

Thanks

If the connect computer wizard was run, there will be logs here:

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Windows Small Business Server
sbsmig
SBSNetSetup
sbsdefault
moveuser

I'm don't think those would be there if it were joined manually.

Part II: Right click the user's My Documents and go to properties.  If it's \\server\users\blah blah, it's redirected.  If it's C:\Documents and Settings\blah blah, it's not redirected.

Thanks.
Part II: how can I see if it was redirected using a gpo or by manually specifying the target on the MyDocuments icon

If it's grayed out on the My Documents properties, it wasn't set that way; it was set through Group Policy.

If it was redirected through SBS:

Open Server Management on your SBS.
Go to Users.
Click "Configure My Documents Redirection"
If it is the first option, "Redirect all users' documents to the default location...," it's redirected through GPO set up by SBS.

You can launch Group Policy Management, expand your domain and look at Group Policy Objects.  Small Business Server Folder Redirection is the GPO SBS uses to redirect.

Hope that answers your question.
