Hi All,

I have create a new OU under our users container. Created a new GPO and assigned a user to this GPO. Made all the required changes including redirecting the user to a pecific shared folder on the network. Granted the user r/w permisions in both the shared and the nfs permissions.

Can not get the gpo to redirect to the desk top. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Regards

There is a little check box under "Settings" you may have to check log in, uncheck and log in again.  soudns silly I now but it does work

"Grant user exclusive right to desktop"
"move contents of dekstop to new location"
if you're doing this on a 2008 or 2008 R3 sevrer and you have XP you need to do
"Aplly re-direction policy....."

also be sure to select the second Radio button on the bottom

:Move data to local user profile when policy is removed" (or something similar to that)
