Windows Server 2016 folder redirection does not occur for Music, Picture and Video folders.

Windows Server 2016 folder redirection is set up for desktop, documents, favorites with music, pictures and videos to follow documents.
On 11 out of 15 computers according to User Folder Shell all categories have folder redirection to server. On 4 of 15, the music, pictures and videos remain according to User Folder Shell pointed to local computer. What would prevent having music, pictures and videos folders not redirect.

Check event logs. Use gp results wizard. Both are valid troubleshooting tools here.

Note that music, videos, etc, have not "followed" documents since XP. They are treated as separate folders with separate policies on all supported OSes.

Apparently, I tripped myself up. Apparently, I changed from follow documents to not configured because I was only going to work on the Documents folder redirection failure.
