I'm playing with a pre-production server and I'm trying to figure out some details about user accounts, GPM, and folder redirect.
I created a user account and a folder redirect policy (on a new domain). Everything worked fine when I added a computer and logged in as that user.
As an experiment, I changed the UNC path to use the Server Name instead of the IP address. This did not work at all...I could not get the user to redirect properly AND, when I reverted back to the old policy, the user still would not redirect correctly. I created a new user and everything worked fine for him. But the original account refused to work.
I deleted the original account and I deleted all the redirected files that were created (just "Desktop", "App Data", "Documents", "Favorites" containers). But when I created the original account (same account name), the policy still will not work. It DOES work for any new users.
I guess I have two questions:
How do I permanently delete a user (such that I can use the same user name without any old policies being applied)?
How do I change a group policy that has already been applied to certain users?
