Group Policy Issue with folder redirection

Hello Experts ,

I have a group policy issue I have not found the answer to.
The user is under the right OU and according to the GPMC > Group Policy Results Wizard it is applying the correct group policy where the folder redirection rules reside.
The group policy results wizard reported a failure in the folder redirection because it was trying to create a folder.
This is the error reported.
Redirection options=0x9211. The following error occurred: cannot create folder.

Would someone be able to shed some light on this ?
I was guided to this article but the content was very general.


Any assistance would be appreciated.
Thank you.

Whats the actual error in the Event Log>Application Log, source "Folder Redirection" from the client?

First thing, check Permissions.
What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Try to go to the folder with UNC & create a folder to see if user actually has rights.
To be more clear, please see below:

It turns out the issue is related with a SID that was not understood by the Active Directory. We also added in the co-owner permissions.
