Folder Redirection


We upgraded servers from 2003 to 2012 and have pretty much been able to transfer everything and get everything up and running. Except this: I setup GPO to allow folder redirection (I copied all the folders from the old server to the new one and pretty much set the same path). However when I login on a client machine the folder redirection still points to the old server (instead of newserver\mydocumentts it is oldserver\mydocumets). Have tried updating the policy and using gpudate but no avail. Any help is appreciated?

Point the GPO to a new empty share with the proper permissions. The files will copy when the user next logs in. Manually pre-staging/copying files causes issues as the folder redirection processor sees version conflicts. There are ways to do this, but it is cumbersome and best avoided for most situations.
