Group Policy Issue with folder redirection

Posted on 2011-10-25

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.

    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:

    Check out the part where share is set for Folder Redirections.

    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.
