Migrating a my documents redirection share
Posted on 2011-09-18
I currently have a GPO that has several thousand users redirecting their mydocs folder to \\server1\shares\%username%. I've configured a server called server2 using failover clustering and want to move all this data to \\server2\shares\%username%.
I want to do it with minimal user impact. I'm concernd that if I just update the group policy setting to point to the new share that I'll have thousands of machines moving data at the same time (I think if the GPO changes, the machine will automatically move data to the new share from the old one, right?). I want to aovid slowness and large amounts of network usage.
What's the best way to do this?
