Hello List....

We have our user's "My Documents" folder mapped to an "H:" drive which
is located on one of our file servers.  Each branch office has a file
server and the user's home drive is located on the file server in that
office.  Our PS4.5 farm is located centrally at our corporate office.

As each site has a different file server, the path to the home directory
changes depending on which office the user is from, ie: the mapping
would look something like:

When users launch applications published from the Citrix farm, it seems
to be somewhat random as to whether the "My Documents" folder that they
see is located on the file server as it should be (which is mapped via
the domain login script), or locally on one of the Citrix servers.  This
seems to be worse with MS Office applications, but it happens with other
applications as well.

How can I force the "My Documents" folder to always point at the users
home directory, regardless of which application they are running and
which branch office they are coming from?
