The GPO manipulates the user shell folders key.

You can script changes to it. But a GPO may undo it.

You could get tricky with ou member ship and layer policies.

The flex profile kit might help.

I have had quirkiness with redirecting via GPO myself.  I manually set it in
the user shell folders key of the server's default profile and then
flex/roam the profile from there.

We use AD Group Policy to redirect My Documents to a network file share. I
need to be able to overwrite this setting for specific users using a login
script.  Has anyone done this before?  Im comfortable mapping normal drives
to a specific location using a drive letter but how would I map My Document
in a script to something like:

My Documents                 \\server\users\%username%

Is this possible or must I remove the GPO restriction first or create
another GPO to override it?
