lost user home folder on server 2008 after moving user from XP to WIN7 pro
Posted on 2014-01-02
Previously on server 2003 and migrated to server 2008 R2. All clients on xp machines with folder redirection (my documents) to user's home directory on d:/data/username (//servername/data/%username%. No problems with my xp machines/users. One user just moved to win7 pro and the home directory on the server changed to d:/data/my documents.
Folder redirection - documents enabled using GPO....
settings -- basic redirect everyone's folder to the same location
target -- redirect to the user's home directory
checked off -- also apply redirect .... to 2000, 2003 windows xp.
I am not moving anyone else until I know where we went wrong
