Folder Redirection Server 2008

I created a GPO for Documents to be redirected to a share folder on the network. I restated the server, and the test client computer. The documents on the test client are still pointing to the local path for documents. Is there anything that has to be done on the local clients after the GPO folder redirection to make everyones My Documents redirect to the share drive? All of the clients are Windows 7 Pro.

Thanks

As penguin mentioned, you should have some information in the Application or System log that will tell you exactly what is going on. Check any Warnings or Errors in the event logs on the workstation to see what is happening. You may also want to run GPUpdate/force while logged in to make certain that the workstation has read and applied the new setting.
