Folder Redirection - SBS2003 to SBS2011
Posted on 2011-03-18
In the existing SBS2003, the DESKTOP and MY DOCUMENTS folders are redirected to the SBS2003 server to a D: disk on the same server.
I've completed the mailbox migration step to the SBS2011 and about to do the final steps to shutdown the SBS2003 server this weekend.
Instead of these folders living on the SBS2011 server this time around, I am going to copy these folders (and permissions) to a file server so the SBS2011 server doesn't have to deal with the redirected folders traffic.
By updating the folder redirection policy on the SBS2011 server, will the clients pickup the group policy change for the DESKTOP and MY DOCUMENTS folder redirection automatically?
I get the sense that is going to require some additional work other than just changing the folder redirection policy.
How will or shoudl this be done?
