I am in a school with 70 (windows xp pro sp3) computers and a windows 2008 R2 Standard server.
We have currently got mandatory profiles, working well.
Now we want to give permanent students (about 25 students) access to their own my documents folder.
We now try to combine the power of mandatory profiles with document redirection. Simply redirect the my documents folder to a (username) share on the server should do the trick.
However, I am having problems getting event 111 document redirection events and document redirection didn't complete succesfully.
1. with the existing mandatory profiles, document redirection does not work. However, it DOES work if the user has local administrator rights.
2. if I change the profile back to a standard roaming profile (i.e. rename from .man to .dat), the document redirection DOES work.
Below the events in the logging:
16:18:14:771 Entering folder redirection extension
16:18:14:787 Flags = 0x0
16:18:14:787 Unable to apply folder redirection policy, initialization failed.
Similar events are logged:
Info: Folder redirection event 401 - Entering folder redirection extension
Info: Folder rediraction event 401 - Flags = 0x0
Error: Folder redirection event 111 - Unable to apply redirection policy, initialization failed
Error: Userenv event 1085 - The group policy client-side extension Folder Redirection failed to execute. Please look for any errors reported earlier by that extension.
I have had a look at microsoft article: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/295349
but not sure what the difference between them and me is.
I have created a fully new user with a roaming profile from scratch and made it mandatory afterwards .This works for this user. However, if I copy this to another user, this will fail again.
Has anyone any ideas?
