Folder redirection in SBS 2011

Last Modified: 2013-12-02
I can’t seem to get folder redirection to work on a new SBS 2011 server.

I’ve enabled the feature for a handful of users via the SBS console, but even after logging the users on/off three times and forcing a GP update on their computers (Windows 7 P) as recommended by Microsoft, I can see no indication that the feature is working, as evidenced by the fact that the RedirectedFolders folder is empty.

Moreover, I can’t find any errors in the server’s system event log indicating a problem, and it’s FolderRedirection event log is completely empty, so I’m not even sure where to start troubleshooting this.

Anybody have any ideas on what’s going on here?
