I have a new win 2019 server and I am trying to configure group policies to redirect folders.

When I use %username% in the "basic" path name it does Not allow me to apply it.  I have changed the path to a literal username (e.g. user1) it works.

I have tried uppercase for %username% and it still won't apply.

any ideas of how to have this accept the %username% value?
