Group Policy partly applied
Posted on 2009-07-08
I recently created a new group policy object to exclude some folders out of the users' profile. I created the policy so it applies to User's Configuration and initially defined the values of folders to be excluded as follows:
"My Documents";Cookies;"Application Data\Sun";temp
Then Cookies and temp were excluded but not the others. Going through my users' profiles I noticed that the "My Documents" folder inside each profile was named "USERNAME's Documents" (for example, mikew's Documents) so I changed the values of the folders in the policy to the following:
"%USERNAME%'s Documents";Cookies;"Application Data\Sun";temp
Still no luck. Probably the "My Documents" folder needs some tricky naming, but for the sake of me I can't understand why the other one ("Application Data\Sun") doesn't get excluded.
Am I doing something wrong?
Any help is appreciated.
Environment: DC with W2003 R2, TS, File and Print.
The GP Results Wizard run on a few of the users, does not reveal any errors. It says that the winning GPO is the one I intend to apply. Event viewer says GPOs have been applied successfully. Any ideas?
