We have a multi site company and have configured a 2nd 2003 server as a backup domain controller on remote site via VPN. We have 3 or 4 users that will need to log onto a workstation from any site but at present they use redirected desktop, documents, favs etc via group policy setting. I have seen that you can turn off redirection accross a slow connection which would be fine but I fear a user will save a document to their my docs or desktop & due to the fact it will not be synced back to the server they will not have the files when they return to the head site.
Is there a way to have the users folders synced accross both sites for these users so both site 1 & 2 have the users desktop, documents etc and when they log off both sites are updated? If not how should this be handled?
