GPO Removal Question
Posted on 2010-08-17
Windows Server 2008 R2 Active Directory Domain
Created GPO to enable Folder Redirection, linked it to "STAFF" organizational unit. (Note Folder Redirection is a "USER" setting). Option to "redirect folder back to local user location" is ENABLED in the GPO settings, as "ENFORCED" option.
All is good except the 2 XP users I removed from the "STAFF" organizational unit earlier today are still having their MY DOCUMENTS synchronization occur when they log out, suggesting the GPO is still be applied (or at least the effect of the GPO has been retained for some reason).
I have tried to stop the GPO from applying to these users by:
MOVING them to a different O.U. in Active Directory
gpupdate /force on W2K8 R2 Domain Controller
gpupdate /force on W2K8 R2 File Server
gpupdate /force on XP computers the 2 users log on to.
Doesn't (shouldn't) removing these user accounts from the 'STAFF' Organizational Unit cause the GPO to be "removed" automatically? Is there a way to manually stop the GPO from applying?
