I have a Server 2008 domain with a Mac OS X 10.6.7 OD Server in a "magic triangle configuration. I am able to correctly create a networked share home folder for the Mac clients. What Want to do is to have primarily the "My Documents" and "Desktop" folders point to the same location, as one of my proof of concept tests is to create a folder/document on the desktop of a Windows client, log off, then log on to a Mac OS X client and see the folder/document. I have tried a couple of different combinations with AD folder redirection, but seem to be hung up on whether to point the folder created in the profile creation process to an existing folder on the redirection share, or to auto generate one via the GPO. Since Mac OS X clients create these folders in the "Home" share, I can't reconcile the two paths: WIndows profile and Mac Home.
