Event 502 Folder Re-Direction and Event 1058 Group Policy Error for only 1 User

Posted on 2014-07-30
Last Modified: 2014-09-04
I recently moved one of our users out of one existing OU and into another. When the user logs into any machine they do not have their Desktop/Documents/Favorites/etc.

The event viewer shows multiple instances of event 502 with error "the system call level is not correct"

I have also ran gpupdate /force. I see event ID 1058 with "network path cannot be found".... the path being the one to the GP file in Sysvol. however, I can navigate to the file from the user's profile through Windows Explorer.

The time it take to load the desktop screen after login is unusually long. Our machines are Win 7 SP 1 and out DC is running Server 2008

You may have tried a few things, such as removing the old network profile directory, clearing out the offline files on the local PC, etc. Nothing seems to take.
Try disabling Offline Files altogether. That seems to do the trick. You can re-enable after. This is the procedure I use:
Make a backup of important user directories, e.g., Desktop and My Documents. At a minimum, backup any directory covered by your Folder Redirection GPO. That GPO and Offline Files can do nasty things to directories if you aren't careful. A backup will save you.
Log into the PC as an admin and DISABLE Offline Files.
Reboot the PC.
Log into the PC as the user having the issue. If it takes several minutes in the logon screen, then the PC is most probably copying over the My Docs, Desktop, etc., to the redirected folder as it should. Great.
Once the login is complete, verify that My Documents is redirected. (In Windows 7, you can right-click on My Documents and click Properties.)
Log out as the user.
Log in as the admin and re-enable Offline Files.
Reboot the PC.
Verify as the user that My Docs and Desktop are redirected and still valid.
All done!

Hope this work, please me know

Hello, This did the trick...Thank you!

Our employees do not always use the same machine which means I must go through the process each time this particular person moves to a different one. This is a bit annoying. Is this normal?
