Hello,

I have setup Folder Redirection on my 2008 R2 server. I am currently redirecting all of our students documents folder to a server 2008 R2 Hyper-V FileServer.

When I look on the share that has been placed on the server I can see all of the students folders. However, when the student(s) login to the workstations they are unable to see their documents.

I have the folder shared out to "Authenticated Users" with Read/Write and I have full control selected in the NTFS permissions.

In the documents propertes of the Redirection GPO I have the following options set.

BASIC - redirect everyones folder to the same location
Target folder location - Create a folder for each user under the root path

Under the settings tab I have,

Grant the user exclusive rights to documents and move the contents of the documents to the new location. Also, leave the folder in the new location when the policy is removed.

Any help is appericiated,

Thank you

Are you getting any errors in the system or app logs after a login?  What version is the user OS?

The user OS is Windows 7 Enterprise. I have not looked at the system or app logs yet. Is there anything specific I should be looking for that you know of?

Yes, Event ID 112, 11, 101 an d 107. all mean different thing, but it wil help narrow down the issue.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

I see no event ID's on the server with the ID numbers you provided. Now I can say this. I did enable the policy a while back then disabled it. Since them I have changed the name of the share and moved it to a different location. I can see all the user account folders on the server. They are just unable to see their docs at the workstation as the client is not showing the servers share as the target.

it would be on the server end.  You can try creating aa test account with eh same parameters as you user accounts.  if you moved there there is a check box in the advanced portion of the policy you need to enable.   "move contenst to the new location"  if it's check already, uncheck it, gpupdate /force, the recheck it and gpupdate /force.  also Select, "leave the folder in the new location when the policy is removed"

Unchecking the box worked and then I rechecked it later on. I also had to go into the advanced settings of the security tab and and then into the owerns tab and set the owner(s) to "Authenticated Users"
