Scenario: Win2003 domain WinXP user MyDocuments is GPO redirected to %username%
new name: cmartin
Made the name change in AD. On general Tab changed Last name and display name. On account tab changed username and pre-win2k name. On profile tab changed home folder to %username%
Everything went well, but user cannot access the home drive....
The "MyDocuments" that existed on her desktop prior to the name change, does NOT let her in. Access is denied. In the properties of this folder, the path points to the OLD name. You cannot change it on her pc. I dont know where to change that in AD as the GPO uses %username%.
The weird thing. If I set permissions on a file or folder, I click add type in new username and it find the ad account. But when I add this to the permissions, in the box it says the OLD name.
She still has access to other network files with no issues after the change.
I think it has something to do with the redirection of her MyDocuments.
How do I fix this?!?
Admins........on your mark...........get set...........GO!!!!! : )
