Windows 7 machines not listening to Folder Redirection group policy after a DC migration to Windows 2016.
At present, the old Windows 2012 Essentials server is still in place but a new Windows Server 2016 Standard server has been added. The domain has been migrated across along with the FSMO roles. After having issues with getting machines to pick up the new Group policy settings due to DNS issues, all does appear to be ok - at least, it is for Windows 10 clients. However, although Windows 7 clients can be coaxed into seeing the correct group policy, they are all ignoring the change in Folder Redirection location.
Things I've tried:
1. gpupdate /force
2. ipconfig /flushDNS
3 Several reboots
4. gpresult /v
This is interesting. After clearing the DNS cache, Windows 7 PCs do now pick up their group policy from the new server. However, they are still ignoring the folder redirection and the result of the above command shows:
5. I've tried removing the WMI filter from the redirection policy - no effect.
6. I've tried creating the new GPO and putting the redirection in there. GPRESULT lists the policy, so it's seeing the right stuff, but it still ignores the redirection.
Remember - Windows 10 PCs are working fine. This appears to be just Windows 7 machines.
Any ideas? I'm getting short of them!
