Folder redirection in Server 2008
Posted on 2011-03-10
We have a client that has a Server 2008 machine. Currently, we do manual folder redirection. I'm looking to implement a GPO that would automate this process for new and existing users. My concern is that when we implement the GPO it will break the current manual folder redirection.
With folder redirection the gpo would create a directory for the user and then redirect the appropriate folders. If the directory already exists for that user what happens? Will it write over the folder or just ignore it and assume the redirection took place?
I just want to be sure that I wont break existing redirection.
