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?

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?

In AD> Select the affected OU> Right click on a user> All Tasks> Resultant Set Of Policy (Planning)>Run the wizard and see whether the new policy is applying.

What did gpresult show?

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

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.
