    There's zero benefit in making the share hidden. This is what users are going to see after all. If you copy the folder structure, the permissions and making sure you use the FQDN (Fully Qualified Domain Name), it should work absolutely fine.

    \\SERVERNAME doesn't work well with Windows 7/2008 R2.

    \\SERVERNAME.domain.domain works perfectly with Windows 7/2008 R2.

    Ok sorry it took so long. I used my FQDN
    \\servername.domain.domain\c$\genericsubfolder\men us\win7\start

    Still no go.


    I deleted my GPO from the 03 server. And created a new one with only three definitions set.
    1. folder redirection
    2. disabled "force classic start menu"
    3. disabled Remove Users folders from the Start Menu.

    Verified folder permission on for the test user.

    Logged in as test user.
    Did gpupdate/ force

    Still no redirected start menu

    Here are my questions.
    1. Should I bother with RSAT?
    2. Should I bother with a local GPO to help with folder redirection
    3. WHAT AM I DOING WRONG!

    Thanks

    Also I would like to add that I am only trying this with the following

    SERVER 2003(AD and DC)
    TESTUSER
    TESTGROUP
    TEST GPO

    WIN7 BOX.

    I would think if you guys have all had success I am just missing something since I am only testing now. GRRR.

    That won't work, re-direct like this:

    Code:
    \\SERVER.domain.domain\ICONS\Curric\Desktop
    
    \\SERVER.domain.domain\ICONS\Curric\Start Menu\Programs
    
    \\SERVER.domain.domain\ICONS\Staff\Desktop
    
    \\SERVER.domain.domain\ICONS\Staff\Start Menu\Programs
    Share the ICONS share with these permissions:

    Everyone - Read & execute, List folder contents, Read

    CREATOR OWNER

    Authenticated Users - Read & execute, List folder contents, Read

    SYSTEM - Full Control

    Domain Admins (DOMAIN\Admins) - Full Control

    Administrators (DOMAIN\Administrators) - Full Control

    Also make DOMAIN\Administrators the Owner of the Icons share too.

    You don't have to use RSAT, it's just recommended, especially as you only have a 2003 DC. The alternative is to add a 2008 R2 DC as well as using RSAT on the workstation.

    You should use a UNC path (as I described above), not a local directory. Desktop/Start Menu Redirection is OK to do, as shortcut files are very small in size.

    I will be working on this later today. Quick question. Do I need to have one of each for "staff" or "curric".
    Since I am only trying with one user can i just use 1 start menu and 1 desktop folder. Also If my sole purpose is to redirect my start menu do I just need the start menu one. Thanks

    It just means if you have pupils and staff users, they can have slightly different shortcuts available to them when they logon.

    In your case, yes you can just stick with Curric for now.

    Yes Curriculum or Curric. I've always used that.
