server 2012r2 Folder Redirection not completely working
Posted on 2013-12-10
hello, we are currently running a mix of 2008 and 2003 servers on the client. redirection worked fine on server 08r2, and somewhat on 2003 (some users were messed up, and refused to update redirection from old destination server to new one))
we decided to replace the 2003 terminal servers with new 2012r2 terminal servers. everything seemed to work fine, but I noticed some folders are not being redirected.
RSOP shows the ones that are working, but its missing "My documents", gpresult shows the policy being applied as well, no errors on event log.. I even installed gpo management on the 2012 server, went and modified the gpo (untick and retick) just to make sure but no luck.
if I click start (using Start8 to bring back the real Start Menu" and right click "Documents" and then go to location and try to set the location to the \\domain
dfs\user\" share " it tells me it cannot add it because its not indexed, but if I click start, then go to computers and right click my documents from there and change the location path to the network share, it lets me change it. obviously I need this to be automatic like it was on 2008r2.
offline files are disabled, and we are using DFS between 2 sites.
any ideas why is not working? this is my first deployment of 2012r2 so im new to it.
