I have migrated an SBS2003 server to SBS2008 but had to change the AD Domain name.
In order to migrate the users profile I removed the computers from the SBS2003 network. Attached them to the SBS2008 network and then ran Profwiz form ForensIT
This seems to have worked ok except that the "My Documents" is still set to the old server and it is greyed out as if still controlled by group policy.
I have checked the group policy on the SBS2008 server and that is configured correctly.
I have ran gpupdate /force on the clients. This makes no difference.
When I run RSOP.MSC on the clients it only shows settings for Desktop redirection and a yellow exclamation mark against "User Configuration"
There is nothing there for "My Documents"
Curiously this hasn't occured on all clients but as far as I can tell they are not different (they must be!). All are running XP SP3 and are up to date with patches.
