"My Document" is over riding User's Home directory

Hi,

I thought I post this since the problem does my head spinned......

I have a client that I managed with the following group policy setup.

"My Document"  Redirect to the user's home directory

The root folder of the user's home directory has the following permissions:

In the advance sharing permission, Everyone has full control permission
Security (tab), authenticated user has only LIST FOLDER CONTENT and READ permission.

From the AD, the user's profile is enable, the home directory connect to \\server\home\%username%


ISSUE:
When a new user is created, then he/or she logons to the domain using Terminal Server Session, under the home directory root folder, instead of the USERNAME will appear, the "My Document" shows up - but if you put your cursor on the "My Document", below the Windows Explorer screen, it shows the User's name.

Does anyone has a clue why 'My Document' is over riding the user's home directory?

My client is using W2K8 R2

Appreciate your input.

This is a known issue where if you shell to a cmd prompt and navigate there and do a dir you will see it correctly. The way we fix it is a 2 part process.
1)Delete the desktop.ini file from that folder
2)Using FSRM< set up a file screen template (you will need to create one) that blocks desktop.ini from being created in the users home folder directory on the server.

You can delete the batch files en masse with bat file like this:

net use z: \\SERVERNAME\Home$
del /s /q /f /A:H z:desktop.ini              
net use z: /d

After you delete the desktop.ini, hit F5 and see if it changes to the correct name

Yes, there is 'desktop.ini' file once I logged on as an admin.

Also, not entirely sure of this......set up a file screen template (you will need to create one)

are you able to elaborate on what are the following switches mean?

del /s /q /f /A:H
