Hi Craig,

 

Don't take offence if this is a stupid question but you did change
\\servername\ to be the name of the server your share is on?

 

Also, use the command 'gpupdate /force' either in a command window or at
the run menu to speed up the group policy refresh. You'll probably need
to log off and/or reboot afterwards.

Hi Craig,

 

That's correct, make sure you have selected "Create a folder for each
user under the root path" as well (above RootPath text field)

Hi Ian
 
Thank you for the quick response.
 
So how i understand you is like this :  What you are saying is that
(bear in mind that i am working remotely on my Win Serv 2003 when
setting this up ) instead of typing D:\MyDocRedirection (which refers to
the local D drive on the server) as the root path i need to change it to
\\servername\MydocRedirection and i should be set then hey - do i
understand you correct?

Hi Craig,

 

You will want to make sure you are using a UNC path for folder
redirection, if you were to set it how you've done it - when the user
logs in they will be looking for their MyDocuments in the D: drive of
there PC (probably a CD drive). 

 

During the configuration of the root folder for your redirected my
documents you would have had to share it (hidden/not hidden) use this
share name for the UNC path example for GPO >
\\servername\MydocRedirection or \\servername\MyDocRedirection$ (if
hidden)

 

Hope this helps/makes sense.

 

Any more q's let me know


Ian

Hi all
 
This is the first time that i'm trying to configure Folder Ridirection
and i followed article
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc782799.aspx as a guide.
However if i do it the way of the article i get a "Warning" right at the
end when i click Finish. I click No on the warning as i do not know what
it mean.
 
The warning says "The target path is not a UNC path. If this is not a
valid local path at the client (which it isn't because the document told
me to put in there the path on the server where everyone's documents
must go to so it shows D:\MydocRiderection) , folder redirection will
fail. Are you sure you want to use this path as the target? Y/N
 
Question: Why is it giving me this error?
 
Thank you for the help
