I upgraded an old 2K3 AD to a 2K8 R2 AD over the weekend. A BDC took the place as the GC while I properly demoted the PDC, wiped out C: partition and reinstall 2K8 R2. Partition D with users profiles was intact.
I updated GPP and client side patches from microsoft, and indeed printers and drive mapping works properly. Folder redirection worked Sat, but today Monday morning, users were not able to see their desktops and my docs. Its like they are still looking for the old location. I had to go on the reg and manually change the string value Personal under HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell Folders and HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders
Which worked, but its a nightmare to do this for PC having more than one user logging in to them.
Any idea what might have gone wrong?
Why did it worked on Sat and today its not working?
Any easy way to patch this weird problem?
p.s. I also tried changing the default user account since someone mentioned something about it but that did not do the trick.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
