Migrating my documents redirection folder to new server
Posted on 2011-09-20
I currently have a group policy deployed such that all users have their my documents folders redirected to \\server1\Shares. I recently installed server2 and want to move the data there. A few questions:
1. Overall, what's the best way to do it?
2. Do I simply update the group policy to point to the new server? If I do that, does the client machine automatically move the data or is that something I need to do manually?
Note that we have several thousand users, so we should plan for that.
Thanks very much for your help
