Disable roaming profiles and folder redirection
Posted on 2013-06-14
We have SBS 2011 with roaming profiles and folder redirection setup. I want to disable both only for 4 users and their computers. These 4 users are the only users that have Windows 8, so I did a couple of things. I applied the GPO to the Windows 7 WMI filter. I also moved the users to a separate OU called Tablet users so that the GPO wouldn't apply to them. I also went to each user in AD and removed the profile path. I ran gpupdate /force on the 4 computers and rebooted....but the documents, pictures, etc are still showing that they are directed to the server. As a test, I logged in as one of the 4 users to a new computer, and it did not setup folder redirection. How can I get the data copied to their local profile and get them off of this once and for all?
