Use of %USERNAME% through GPMC remotely
Posted on 2009-07-07
I've got a Win 2003 64-bit server but am running the GPMC remotly on my workstation (XP). WHile logged into the workstation as myself, I am attempting to setup Folder Redirection through GPMC. After setting 'redirect to following location', and setting the path to be '\\servername\path\%username%\documents', and press OK, there are no error messages. But close GPMC and go back to the folder redirection and it has changed the folder redirection back to 'create a new folder', and '\\servername\path'\.
Any ideas why this %username% keeps breaking?? The folders DO exist, because if I take '\\servername\path\%username%\documents to the run command, a windows explorer opens up the currently logged on user's documents folder...
