Hi All,

I am having problems with redirection when using  DFS on a Windows 2008 server. We currently have DFS setup for our network user shares in the form of \\org.local\filestore\Users\%username%\documents with in group policy.

When the a user first logs in , the folders are created on the server for the user. But the problem is when we try to access the folders ie. Documents, favourites,contacts , it comes up with access denied.

Share permissions are full control for everyone and NTFS shares are modify for the owner of the folder.

Has anyone come across this problem ?

Many thanks
