GPO Help w/ Folder Redirection

Posted on 2012-08-10

I am looking for some help with applying folder redirection via GPO.

I have users in an OU called Employees
I have all computers in the default Computers OU
I have an RDP server in an OU called RDP Servers

I would like for all of the machines in the domain EXCEPT for the RDP server (BlackWidow) to NOT have folder redirection on. So, when user RDPTest logs into pc-1 or server-1, they do not get folder redirection. HOWEVER, when user RDPTest logs into BlackWidow (in the RDP Servers OU) they get the folder redirection GPO applied.

Hopefully this makes sense. I have attached a photo of what things look like to help out.

    Accepted Solution

    I would place the PCs in their own OU.  I don't like leaving them in the default Computers OU.  I would leave the computers OU as a staging location but you should always move PCs to a new OU so you can apply GPOs to them.

    Your question is solved by using GPO Loopback Processing.  Please see this link:
