Windows 7 - Folder Redirection - Synch
Posted on 2012-08-30
We have a Windows 2008 DC. All PC's and laptops are Windows 7 Pro. We redirect the following folders: AppData (Roaming), Contacts, Desktop, Documents, Downloads, Favorites, Links. All the PC's I have disabled Synch Center (offline files). The laptops still have Synch Center enabled.
I am in the middle of migrating all the redirected folders to a new server. Since it's not a ton of data, I'm not pre-staging the user folders, but rather just changing the location via the folder redirection group policy and letting windows handle the data migration.
OLD --> \\oldserver\users
NEW --> \\newserver\users
The issue I'm having is with the laptops and synch center (offline files). The laptops still seam to want to synch with \\oldserver\users.
When I log in as Jane Doe on Jane's laptop, browse to \\oldserver\users\Jane Doe\ I can not check mark to disable 'Make Available Offline'.
The laptops users profiles seam to be very inconsistent and the folders don't seam to be redirecting to the new server, unless i log into a PC as the user.
Any insight would be very helpful!
