Problem with GPO created in Server 2003
Posted on 2012-03-15
I have a project where a prior tech edited the default domain policy for folder redirection. I am making a new GPO to move the settings to, so I can remove the settings from DDP so I can block the inheritance when needed. But, I have a pretty serious problem.
In the DDP, redirecting to a home folder of:
Results in a redirection to
The new GPO, when creating to go the exact same place creates a path of:
The original DDP was created in Server 2003, (we now use 2008R2) which explains the difference. Problem is, I could see this being a major issue linking the new GPO to the DPP after removing the settings and re-linking to the DPP. The file location will change for over 800 people. I'm not sure if the "move items" bit would even work seeing as how those documents aren't local.
The plan was to seamlessly move those settings out to a GPO so a new redirection policy could be pushed out to individual OUs. How can I still achieve this without a disaster?
