I need to implement desktop redirection. I'm familiar with how GP works.

However, I first need to copy the desktops from \\srv1\roamprof\user\desktop to \\srv2\home\users\desktop.

What kind of script can I use for that?

Something for then they log in, or something that I can run manually and the users see nothing?

Thank you

you can create a text file with a list of users and then run something similar to:

get-content c:\users.txt | foreach-object -process {move-item c:\users\$_\ \\srv2\home\users\$_}

You will be copying across the network, so it could be slow and painful...
You can also use something like teracopy
