    W7 and server 2008R2 Folder Re-Direction

    Hi all,

    any help as alway much appreciated....

    got 90% of folder redirection working perfectly but start menu and desktop redirection is not working. in the logs the error is unable to locate the directory \\servername\users\desktop\ for the desktop share (it is valid share path with correct Perms (everyone Read & Authenticated users Read) and for the start menu the error is unable to create start menu access denied.

    path is the same as above but called start_menu.

    any ideas ?

    also setup a default profile but when a logging on it logs the user in with a temporary profile.... ? no idea why. it has the v2 extension and the ntuser.dat is now ntuser.man

    thanks in advance

    Just a thought... As I'm redirecting all folders (AppData, Docs, Fave's, links, downloads)

    do we actually need a default profile ?

    Have you tried a FQDN for the server name in the path ? I know you said other stuff is working but it seems to like the FQDN for somethings.

    Check owner on the files as well (I'm guessing this is a locked down desktop / Start Menu if it's read only?)
