Windows Server Group Policy - Redirected Folders

Last Modified: 2012-05-19
Heres the Scoop...
We've got a site which has (2) DC's. One is running 2003 SBS, and the primary is running 2003 Enterprise. The GPO's were setup by someone else and are managed on the 2003 SBS Machine, with the directory that houses the Redirected Folders. We created a new user account and attempted to login and verify that redirected folders were working correctly. We ran a force, and put a test file in the documents folder of the new user. Upon trying to view the 'documents' folder (redirected), the folder for the new user wasnt created. After rebooting, still nothing. I attempted to run an RSOP on the machine under both the new user, and domain admin accounts, and heres what I receive:

" RSoP data is invalid. Likely causes are, data is corrupt, data has been deleted or data has never been created.

details: Invalid namespace".

Ive tried this on multiple workstations, under multiple usernames, but I cant seem to pull an rsop to see what gpo's are being applied.
