Hi Experts

We have just upgraded our Active Directory Servers to 2012 Datacenter, AD, DNS & DHCP are working fine, but we are having some issues with Group Policy as follows:

We have a GPO that redirects the users doccuments and desktop to a network share but it isnt working, when I run GPRESULT /R it show that that policy has been applied, but when saving a file to the desktop it saves it on the C:
All our Users are running Win7 Enterprise

The second issue is when we change a GPO, and view the "Status" we get the following message:

The SYSVOL permissions for one or more GPOs on this domain controller are not in sync with the permissions for the GPOs on the baseline domain controller.

Any help is greatly appreciated

Thanks

Jon

Hi,

check to sysvol permission and reset it if needed

They follow a standard NTFS permissions of the SYSVOL folder:
% SystemRoot% \ Windows \ Sysvol

Clear the Allow inheritable permissions from parent to propagate to this object check box
Administrators: Full Control
Authenticated Users: Read, Read & Execute, List Folder Contents and
Creator Owner: Nothing selected
Server Operators: Read, Read & Execute, List Folder Contents and
System: Full Control
% SystemRoot% \ Windows \ Sysvol \ Sysvol

Clear the Allow inheritable permissions from parent to propagate to this object check box
% SystemRoot% \ Winnt \ Sysvol \ Sysvol \ domain

Clear the Allow inheritable permissions from parent to propagate to this object check box
% SystemRoot% \ Winnt \ Sysvol \ Sysvol \ domain \ Policies

Clear the Allow inheritable permissions from parent to propagate to this object check box
Administrators: Full Control
Authenticated Users: Read, Read & Execute, List Folder Contents and
Creator Owner: Nothing selected
Group Policy Creator Owners: Read, Read & Execute, List Folder Contents, Modify, and Write
Server Operators: Read, Read & Execute, List Folder Contents and
System: Full Control
For each file or folder that is located in the% SystemRoot% \ Winnt \ Sysvol \ Sysvol \ domain \ Policies

Check the Allow inheritable permissions from parent to propagate to this object check box
Sysvol share permissions:

Administrators: Full Control
Authenticated Users: Full Control
Everyone: Read


As far as the redirection can you tell me how you redirected it? There may be a syntax error.
