My Documents Redirection Policy Failing after server reloaded
Posted on 2010-09-07
I have a GPO that redirects everyone's My Documents folder to \\%HOMESHARE%%HOMEPATH% it has been working great. However I have recently Wiped & Reloaded the server where everyone's Home Folder is stored. I have updated the path in AD and I have triple checked the share & security permissions on each folder and they are correct. The Server even kept the same name that it had before the Wipe & Reload. The only difference is I hide the users share.
Before Wipe & Reload - \\%HOMESHARE%%HOMEPATH% = \\servername\users\staff\%USERNAME%
After Wipe & Reload - \\%HOMESHARE%%HOMEPATH% = \\servername\users$\staff\%USERNAME%
My understanding was that since the GPO is set to redirect to \\%HOMESHARE%%HOMEPATH% that once I changed the path in AD it should automatically redirect to the correct folder. Provided the Security permissions are set correctly. As I mentioned I have triple checked both the Share & Security Permissions and I am certain they are correct.
Am I missing anything?
