Adding files via Group Policy - path not found using variable
Posted on 2013-06-13
We are using the File Preference to copy a file to a users profile at logon to a server in a terminal server farm. So, the profiles on the server are deleted. The lovely app know as QuickBooks (sarcasm) wants to put an INI file in AppData/Local....which is not part of the roaming portion of the profile.
We are using the File Preference policy to try and copy the file at logon. HOwever, we are getting path not found errors when the policy processes. The source location is fine and fully accessible. So, I think this error is for the destination (although it is not clear). We are trying to use variables. We tried %localappdata%/Intuit/ and C:/Users/%username%/AppData/Local/Intuit/, but neither of those worked.
Will the File Preference GP create the folders if they don't exist?
