My Documents Redirection
Posted on 2011-03-01
So, we have a network with 2 geographical locations. Each location has its own File/Print Server. We have 2 group policies to redirect everyone's "My Documents" to one of the two File/Print Servers. These policies are applied at the "User" level but not the "Computer." As I understand GPO, this means that Users in the scope of the GPO will be affected by the redirect. So, if a person that normally works at Location A logs into a computer that's in an organizational unit for Location B their documents should still redirect to Location A's File/Print Server because the user profile is in the organizational unit in the scope of Location A. In other words, the organizational unit in which the computer is stored should have no impact on how a User GPO is applied.
However, I have a user who's documents are moved from Location A to Location B's File/Print Server every time she logs in at Location B. Then when she logs in at Location A again, because her docs have all been moved to Location B, they appear to be empty.
Does anyone have any idea why this is happening and how to stop it?
