Folder Redirection with multiple OS generations

Hi All,

I am looking for some information. I would like to know the limitations with folder redirection when using multiple OS's (i.e. Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, and a couple of 2000 machines). We have noticed that while using folder redirection between Windows XP and Windows 7 it does to work very well. Windows XP seems to work and Windows 7 does not. Is it possible to set up redirection with multiple OS's or will it always have issues? Any help or info would be greatly appreciated.

Here is the complete path:
1) Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\System\Logon\ Always wait for the network at computer startup and logon

2) Computer Configuration > Policies > Administrative Templates > System > Verbose vs Normal logging
The second policy will show you what is going on during logon rather than just some spinning wheel..

As a matter of fact put it on Domain level, it only does benefit than harm....

I am having folder redirection policy on the domain and both XP & windows 7 client's are fine. I would like you to please create new profile on the windows 7 or test by creating new user account.

Please read through:

It's entirely possible to set folder redirections in multiple OS, it should work seamlessly.

The point where you have to start looking at is the Windows 7, by design Folder Redirections can take up to 3 logins, if you don't see it happening then is the point to start worrying, before that it's how MS wants it to be.

To overcome this design miss feature you can setup the policy, Always wait for Network before logon.
