[THIN] Re: Redirection

OK, then my environment is different.

When I turned on Folder Redirection, and the user's Destination "My
Documents" folder existed already, I got the following events logged in
the application log of the server they were logging into:
(username and servername changed to protect the innocent...)
<-------------Snip------------>
Event Type:     Error
Event Source:   Folder Redirection
Event Category: None
Event ID:       101
Date:           3/3/2005
Time:           8:35:11 AM
User:           DCCI\*****
Computer:       TERMINAL01
Description:
Failed to perform redirection of folder My Documents. The new
directories for the redirected folder could not be created. The folder
is configured to be redirected to \\FileServer\Personal\%USERNAME%, the
final expanded path was \\FileServer\Personal\*****. The following error
occurred: 
This security ID may not be assigned as the owner of this object.   
<-------------Snip------------>


And upon using SubInACL to reset the ownership for this users folder,
the My Documents was redirected properly.

Your Mileage May Vary, but that's what happened to me... So there must
be SOME requirement for the user to be the owner of their own My
Documents folder...

No he doesn't need to be the owner.  Have you checked the share
permissions?
Can your users write to their home directories?  If it is a 2003 file
server the default share permissions for everyone will be set to Read.
Even if your file permissions say change it will give them Read access
if they are accessing the files through the share.

So even if he's got rights, he needs ownership?
