Group Policy Question?

Hi,

I had folder redirection policy for the desktop to a share on a diffrent server. I have changed this policy to point it to a diffrent server now, but for some reason its still looking at the old share on the old server that i want to decommision?

1. i have gpudate/force
2. rebooted server several times to no avail

is there a way i can manually change this on the server that has this policy applied too i.e registry edit and point it to the new share?

Please take a quick look here on how to utilize RSOP:

It basically lists or policies have precedence and that can help pinpoint where it's failing

what happens when you run gpresult from cmd on the client machine? You ran gpupdate /force on the client machine correct?
What does RSOP.msc show on the server?

Expand the RSOP > User Config > Windows Settings > folder redirection > Documents > right click and choose properties.

This is what's actually being applied to that user / OU

make sure the UNC path is correct.
