Not able to redirect folders logging on to Windows Server 2008 Terminal Server

I am testing a Windows Server 2008 Terminal Services environment at my office.  I'm trying to get something together for a 'proof of concept' for my boss.

I have:
Windows Server 2008 Standard 32-bit Terminal Server
Windows Server 2003 AD (Native Mode) environment
Windows Server 2003 File Shares set up for both Profiles and My Documents Redirection.
- \\delirium\profiles\ - All roaming profiles will go here
- \\delirium\users\ - All Documents, Pictures, Videos, etc folders will go here

When logging on, I'm sure that my roaming profiles are working, but I'm getting error messages when it tries to redirect the Videos, Pictures, Favorites, Music, and Documents folders.

The error messages are the same, but the folder path is different.

I have confirmed that the share and NTFS permissions are correct on the shares.

Log Name:      Application
Source:        Microsoft-Windows-Folder Redirection
Date:          7/2/2009 10:14:13 AM
Event ID:      502
Task Category: None

 Redirection options=80001211.
 The following error occurred: "Failed to update known folder's paths".
 Error details: "The system cannot find the file specified.
".

Any ideas?

I see you said the NTFS permissions appear to be correct but if you sign is as testuser can you open this UNC:  \\delirium\users\testuser\Documents  or do you get access denied or something else?    Can you ping delirium?

I can ping DELIRIUM and I can access the network path \\delirium\users\testuser\Documents while logged onto the Terminal Server as test user.  I can created and delete files and folders in this network path as well.

For the GPO to redirect if you put in delirium.cgs.ca instead of just delirium do you still get the same event?

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

You can still get to the folder going to:

\\delirium\users\%username%\documents  from a run line?

I still get the errors, after changing it to delirium.cgs.ca and now I'm noticing that I'm also getting a temporary profile.  If I recall, I got a pop up just before I changed the hostname to the FQDN as well.

temp profile issue is on that server.   I have had that a few times on Windows 7 and 2008 servers and just removed the registry profile to allow it to recreate.   Have you attempted to use any other test accounts?

OK, after using a new test user (testuser2), I'm able to log on without profile issues.
I am still receiving this error in the event log and my folders aren't redirecting:

I have bumped up the points, this one is pretty urgent.
Anyone have any ideas?

Ok since its only the TS what about following this to get it up and working with the VBS script:

I'd prefer to use Group Policies and Preferences for my Terminal Servers.  I'd like to make sure that anyone who helps me here can change settings through a console instead of weeding through VBS script.
Thank you though.

I just need to make a comment on my own question here...

The last line of the error states 'The system cannot find the file specified'.  What file might it be referring to?
