Right. So it might have to be a Startup Script. _____ From: gptalk-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:gptalk-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Nelson, Jamie R Contr 72 CS/SCBAF Sent: Friday, July 20, 2007 11:05 AM To: gptalk@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [gptalk] Re: Moving Server for Redirected Folders Actually, I just realized that the last component in the UNC path is different ('mydocs' vs. 'documents'), so altering the DNS record wouldn't work unless you change the redirected path in GPO2 to \\server2\home\%username%\mydocs <file:///\\server2\home\%25username%25\mydocs> . I don't think you could use a logon script either, because Folder Redirection usually occurs before Script policy is processed.

Some of the files in the redirected folder have been made available offline by the users. Currently, My Docs points to \\server1\home\%username%\mydocs <file:///\\server1\home\%25username%25\mydocs> . I have defined a new GPO that points to \\server2\home\%usersname%\documents <file:///\\server2\home\%25usersname%25\documents> . Some of the My Documents folders have several gigs of data. I realize that simply disabling GPO1 on Friday and enable GPO2 on Monday will move the data. My concern is that the network will get really bogged down. I would like to do the move manually over the weekend. The problem seems to be that files that have been added to or modified in the Offline Files cache get placed back in the server1 location. I can change that path using csccmd.exe. However, once the sync happens at login, it is too late. The files have already been placed back on server1. Can I run this as a Startup Script instead? Or is there a way to delay the syn until I have run that csccmd script? (The latter would be better since I could use the %username% variable.) Any thoughts on this much appreciated. Thanks.
