Roaming home dir conflicting

Last Modified: 2013-11-21

The following applies to 3 terminal server with MS srv. 2008 SP1 servers in a domain.
User home and desktop is redirected (roamed) using GPO. Everything has been working correctly.

Recently I changed the location of the users romed home directory i the GPO with the result that the terminal servers now believes that the home location is both at the old and the new location. I have used gpupdate and rebooted the servers several times.

This is the logged error:
Failed to apply policy and redirect folder "RoamingAppData" to "\\DBA\home$\eha\AppData\Roaming".
 Redirection options=1001. (this is the new address)
 The following error occurred: "Failed to build the list of regular subfolders under "\\fil1\tshome$\eha\AppData\Roaming"".
 Error details: "Access is denied.

I have double checked that the GPO is correct.
How do I force the servers to get the correct location of the user home?
