My Dcouments - Folder redirection ixxue

We have a Windows Server 2003 AD domain.

We have all of our Departments in their own OU. Each OoU has its own GPO.

For most users we reidrect the "My Documents " folder to a network drive.  We use the Folder Reditection GPO for this.

All users have the same path to their "Home" drive: "\\server\share\userdata\%useranme%"

This is where we redirect users "My Documents" to. IN GPO we only need to enter "\\server\share\userdata\" and GPO does the rest.

Soeme users end up with this:
"\\server\share\userdata\Clair\MyDocumemts" ~('Clair' is the MS example in GPO
"\\server\share\userdata\Clair\My Documemts"

An its a nightmare!! We need to start using the Drive Maps function of the newer Windows Server 2008 R2 (all GPOs were inplace before the 2008 R2 servers went in!. Also, this issue was there before the same serves went in!).

Any ideas?

Right click on username

Too many users in AD.

We need to set this centrally.

Why the differences?

Thanks
