Folder Redirection server 2008 r2 not working
Posted on 2012-08-31
Folder Redirections was set up by a another admin in my job. It has been working for about a year.
All existing 52 teachers have been using folder redirection to use their files in whatever class room they are in. The issues now are that all 52 users log into their profiles and they cannot see their files that they have been working on and with over the last year.
I have checked the properties on their doc or desktop they seem to be looking at the local machine and not to their folder redirection on the server.
Now when I log into their files on the server as admin I can see all their work from before this issue happened.. but the main issue now is they can wait to get thee files back but any new files they make are only stored on the local pc so when I fix this issue they will have some files on the local pc and the rest on the folder redirection.
When creating a user in the active directory users and computers there is a user called new user. Normally I just right click and copy. This allows me to put in the new users name and password. The new user then can log in to any computer on the network and there desktop, my docs, and so on are folder redirected to a server call \\Prometheus\Folder Redirection\ %Username
But have created a few tests accounts to day and all them seem to be looking locally at the desktop, my doc and not the server
Could anybody give me some help as to what may be wrong or could something have been disabled that is stopping folder redirection policy from working
o one more thing i have deleated the local stored profiles from some of the pc to see if when the user logs back into a computer that it might reactivate there connection to folder redirection no look do
THANKS for any and all help given
