Folder redirection applied to user OU, however I want redirected files to be cached when user logs in to Laptop
Posted on 2016-10-06
I've seen similar questions been asked before however I dont think these work in my situation.
I have created a a Folder redirect group policy which maps the desktop and document folders to a server share (rather than the default local storage). This is applied to an OU that contains all users. This is to speed up user logins.
I have seperate OUs for Computers and laptops. What i want is for users to be able to access a cached version of their desktop and documents if they log onto a domain joined laptop that they then want to use when not connected to the corporate network.
At present, if they log onto a laptop that doesnt have a corporate network connection they get an error (rightly so) that the folders for their desktop and documents cannot be reached.
Is there a way to apply a GPo to the Laptop OU that allows users to have a cached copy of their otherwise mapped folders on the local laptop? Or, am I going about this the wrong way?
Offline files seems to be switched on. All laptops are Windows 7 pro and server is 2012 r2.
