Hello,

We are using home folder for users. It is set via AD user properties. Recently we changed location of the share to a new server. Everything is workign fine except - we have a policy defined where it set to rederect My Documents to user's home directoy. After changing home dir share to new server, My Document location is not following new home directory location. It is still pointed to old location.

I forced gpupdate but still no luck. Am I missing something?

Thanks!

I just see an event ID on a affected machine. Event ID 107

The description for Event ID ( 107 ) in Source ( Folder Redirection ) cannot be found. Either the component that raises this event is not installed on your local computer, or the installation is corrupted. You can install or repair the component on the local computer, or contact the component manufacturer for a newer version.

If the event was saved from another computer or forwarded from a remote computer, you might have to include display information with the events when saving them or when setting up the forwarding s My Documents, The directory name is invalid. , \\oldserver\users\user1, \\newserver\users\user1.

Did you move the content over to the new share manually?

See if this will help: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en/winserverGP/thread/09991589-5137-43c9-b29d-3102dc3ededd

Thanks. SNUSGUBBEN! Unchecking the Move Content solved the problem. As I already moved data over.
