Windows 7 Documents Folder Redirection on SBS 2003 not working
Posted on 2011-02-15
I'm in the process of adding some Windows 7 Machines to an existing SBS 2003 Domain.
The existing XP machines on the Domain have a GP that redirects their My Documents to a network share \\server\users\username. This all works fine.
Before Adding the Win7 Machines I loaded the RSAT tools on one and created a WMI filtered GP just for the folder redirections. I created a test OU and added a test user to this and linked the GP.
The Policy has Basic Redirect setup to \\server\userdata\username\Documents
All options Disabled.
I created the 'userdata' share on the server and gave System & Admin Full Control, Domain Users: Traverse Folders/Execute , List / Read , Read Attib, Read Extended, read Permissions.
I Created a test user and set their Home Folder to H: \\server\userdata\%username% which made the users name under the userdata share.
I then logged in on the Win7 Machine.
Looking on the server I can see that the Documents folder is created under the Userdata\username.
Looking at the WIn7 Machine:
When I check the My Documents from the desktop it's still pointing to C: Drive.
When I check the Event logs I get:
Failed to apply policy and redirect folder "Documents" to "\\server\UserData\test.user\Documents".
The following error occurred: "Failed to update known folder's paths".
Error details: "The system cannot find the file specified.
When I check GPsvc.log

Any Ideas? I have the feeling I'm missing something obvious but can't see the woods for the trees after having messed around with this for a few days.
