Change folder redirected path issue.

I have a Windows 2012 RDS collection with 1 session broker and 2 hosts.  

After updated UNC path of my redirected folders in a group policy, the RDS hosts is still referring to the old path even doing gpupdate /force.

The "user shell folders" and "shell folders" in the HKCU has a lot of entries that contain the old path.  

Is there a way to fix?

When you change a folder redirection path, windows will attempt to move files from the old location to the new one at first logon after the policy gets applied. If that move fails (old location is offline, file permissions, etc) then the path is *not* updated. /force won't change that. This is by design, as preventing data loss is the primacy behind that behavioral decision.

Cliff,

When I login to the RD hosts now, I am seeing "You've been signed in with a temporary profile"

Do you know what might have happened?

After so many retries, I finally have an idea of how to set this up.  But I want to get this fix instead of going through rebuild everything.

Thanks,

Corrupt profile, bad profile location, bad registry entries.... temporary profiles are wholly independent from redirected folders, and there just isn't any information to guess what went wrong, thus no suggestion on how to fix it.
