Greetings,

I am completeng a migration for a customer from 2003 to 2011.  Folder redirection is not functioning properly.  It seems to be pointing at the old server.  When I do a gpresult or rsop.msc I see the policy is originating from the new server, but it’s applying a folder redirection policy that I deleted.  I verified on both the new and the old that the policy is gone.   Any thoughts?

perhaps a gpupdate /FORCE is in order here.

Sadly, first thing I tried...well maybe second or third.  I also tried deleting the offline file cache, manually editing the registry.

As it turned out, the policy was pointing to a policyfile that no longer existed.  Could not restore.  Ended up turning off policies one at a time until it began working.
