I have an issue that I have now ran into for a second time and I have spent hours upon hours trying to find a resolution. Following Microsoft's article to configure Folder Redirection: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj649078.aspx
, I configured Folder Redirection. This is when the issue started. I've had an incredible struggle of a time trying to get the Windows 7 computers to properly redirect folders under any of my user accounts.
Here are the errors I've found:
-gpresult /v shows Folder Redirection settings as applying.
-RSOP shows yellow exclamation mark, under Errors it says "Folder Redirection failed due to the error listed below. Cannot complete this function."
-Event Viewer logs an error 1085, Group Policy. Windows failed to apply Folder Redirection settings.
Here is my configuration:
-A shared folder called "Users". Permissions break down to:
Administrators: Full Control on This folder, subfolders and files.
CREATOR OWNER: Full control, Subfolders and files only.
Folder Redirection Users: Special (List folder / read data, Create folders / append data, Read permissions), This folder only.
SYSTEM: Full control, This folder, subfolders and files.
-User's My Documents, Desktop and Favorites are redirected using the full path \\VH.SH.LAN\Users\%usernam
-This is a fresh install of Windows Server 2012 R2, with a Virtual Host machine that runs the File and Print Services, and a Virtual Windows Server 2012 R2 that runs the AD/DC/GP functions.
-I did a fresh install of Windows 7 Professional in a Virtual Machine on the Virtual Host and integrated it into the domain. All the user accounts worked just fine in this environment.
-Two of the computers I've integrated are brand new Dell OptiPlex 7010s from Dell. One of them seems to work with some accounts, and the other one does not.
-I've integrated one of the already-existing computers into the domain (it was not in the domain previously) and it did not work with the redirected folders.
-All other Group Policies, including Shared Printers, Mapped Network Drives and Trend Micro install work just fine.
Please let me know if I miss anything, or if I think of anything else I'll add it. This is really driving me insane.
Thank you all.
