Windows 2008 Server - Folder Redirection Error

Posted on 2012-08-14

Hi Experts,

I have checked through our logs and seen the following error:
Failed to apply policy and redirect folder "RoamingAppData" to "C:\Users\user\AppData\Roaming".
 Redirection options=9221.
 The following error occurred: "Can not create folder "C:\Users\user\AppData\Roaming"".
 Error details: "This security ID may not be assigned as the owner of this object.

Open in new window

I have checked through GP and we dont seem to have any policy in place for Folder Redirection.

I have also checked the permisions of the users folder and it seems to be all good.

Any help will be appreciated.

    I think you might need to double check your GP settings...User side.

    In the Group Policy console, expand the User Configuration, Windows Settings, and Folder Redirection nodes. Icons for the personal folders that can be redirected will be displayed.

    We do not have anything doing folder redirection in our GP.
