Hi Folks,

I have changed the Redirected Folders on our SBS 08 server to now point to the new NAS Server. I disabled Folder Redirtection in SBS console Manager and redirected the userd in Group Policy.

Most the users have sucessfuly migrated to the new NAS but a few still haven't.

I know this can take a few login attampts to complete but the is now a few weeks old since I made the change.

What is the best plan on action now for the remaining users who are still pointing to the SBS 08 Server?

Thanks

On a machine in question run "rsop.msc" from the command line and check what Computer/User policies are being applied. This is pushed out via GPO so they might not have the proper GPO being applied to their machine.

You do have to look at a machine that isn't running and rather than running rsop, I suggest running the following command:

GPRESULT /h result.html

This will create a very easy to understand html document that will provide you with clues as to what's going wrong.

Then, almost all of the reasons Folder Redirection fails are listed in this great article:

OK..

The issue I have it that the Redirected folders that is was using it not there anymore.

In the log files its failing on the redirect policy as its trying to communicate with the old location (that's dead) to copy over to the new location.

I have also removed all Folder Redirect Policies in GP to try and get it to default to local but still failing.

I gave run gpupdate /force and this does not help either.

Is this going to be a case of new profiles for the user ?

Thanks

Can anyone please help.

The profiles are so slow now opening up program's and attachments it's unbearable to use the computers.

All the users are complaining and needing it fixed.

Thanks

OK..

I have now removed the DNS entry for the NAS, Re-Created the GP to not move the data to the new location and to re-create the folders for the user using %USERNAME%.

This is now working on the Folder redirection on the clients.
