I'm having problems getting the existing document folder redirection policy to apply to existing users who have moved from XP to Windows 7. The policy works perfectly when they are on XP. It works perfectly when a new user is given a Windows 7 machine. When I created a test user, and logged him onto an XP machine which created the folders on the fileserver for his documents, and then logged that same user onto a Win 7 machine, the redirection still works perfectly. But when any of my existing users, who originally got their GPO applied to their Windows XP machines before the WS2008 machine was installed and this whole migration process began and who have established folder structures and files on their documents folder on the server, are given a Windows 7 box, the policy does not apply. Running gpupdate /force on the user machine results in the generic error below:
The Group Policy Client Side Extension Folder Redirection was unable to apply one or more settings because the changes must be processed before system startup or user logon. The system will wait for Group Policy processing to finish completely before the next startup or logon for this user, and this may result in slow startup and boot performance.
Computer Policy update has completed successfully.
Obviously this happens no matter how many times I log off and reboot.
When I model the GP against the 2008 DC, the model shows successful application. See attached screenshot "GPModel-ramiroe~smsf08.pn
When I model it against the 2003 DC, I get the message "An Unknown error occurred while data was gathered for this extension: Details: Not Found"
I've installed the Group Policy Preference Client Side Extensions for Windows Server 2003 (KB943729) per the troubleshooting I tried following this EE thread: http://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Microsoft_Operating_Systems/Server/2003_Server/Q_26469902.html?sfQueryTermInfo=1+10+2003+30+7+gpo+server+window
I'm stumped and and this is turning into a massive time sink. Can anyone help?
