DFS folder redirection with GPO and recent office 2010 links that wont open properly
Posted on 2013-12-16
On Friday I redirected everyones home folder to the DFS point, as I saw they were just pointing to a single file server. My issues now are office wont open the files that pointed to \\server1\userdocuments\username\documents in the recent opened file page.
It errors with unable to find the location, which it is a viable location if I type it in windows explorer. If I open a file from the DFS share now in the user's home drive or on the file servers it opens in protected view which I can fix with a GPO to remove the alert.
The save location in office points to the DFS share of the users home drive which is good.
So is there a reason the DFS location is opening in protected view and why wont the recent office links which point directly to the file server not open anymore?
