In HKEY_USERS in the registry the .default account under /shell user folders we have the My Documents and Favorites pointed to a network drive. So any user that logs in is therefore pointed to the F:\My Documents and F:\Favorites. The problem that we are having is the system account is changed to the same during this process. When we push updates it uses the system account and they are failing because the system account can't find the F drive.
When I change the default account to %USERPROFILE% instead of F:/ the updates work and all is good except when a NEW user logs in they are now pointed to %USERPROFILE% instead of F:/. The updates cannot be pushed using a different account. Anybody have any ideas?
