Hi All, I'm trying to redirect my users home drive to a DFS Namespace \\domainname\users\<username>

If I create the folder on the \\UNCPathofServer\Users\ it works and applies the permissions correctly, but if i try to set it to \\domainname\dfsnamespace\users\%username% I get a message saying that the user doesn't have permissions to create the folder, but the path has been updated.  

Is there something I am missing??

Do you and your users have full control at the share level all of the copies of \\domaincontrollerX\dfsnamespace ? I say all copies because hopefully you have more than one domain controller hosting the DFS root.

Oh! I'll check in the morning, I only changed the share permissions on the one server.

There are 3 servers hosting this namespace...

Exactly what the problem was! Needed to set the share permissions at each location
