GPO folder redirection still referencing old server after changing to new server
Posted on 2011-09-20
We had to install a new server 2008 R2 from a Windows 2003 server that was a DC and only server with a role on our network.
All is good but the Group Policy is still referencing the old server and we are getting the error:
Failed to perform redirection of folder Desktop. The full source path was <\\server\$usersmydocs\xxxxx\desktop>. The full destination path was <\\server\$usersmydocs\xxxxx\desktop>. At least one of the shares on which these paths lie is currently offline.
\\server is now \\server1
We had to change the reference in the registry so everyone can actually work.
Now they still get errors on login where Windows XP Pro reports that it can't find the roaming profile and is using the local profile, but when they click ok and the system logs in it shows the proper desktop mydocs etc from the new server.
I have no idea where the folder redirection is referencing \\server the group policy shows \\server1.
Any ideas would be appreciated.
