Folder Redirection / Roaming User Profiles
Been trying for a couple of days now to get folder redirection working on Windows 7. Currently works with no issues on Windows XP and Vista. However creating a new user and performing the first log on in Windows 7 has issues with Profiles and Redirection.
I have tested redirection in the following manner -
Create a New OU in AD
Block Inheritance to this new OU
Create a single Group Policy Object, defining only Folder Redirection
Create an account in the new OU
Define the Profile path and Home Drive as current users are set up
Define the Profile Path and Home Drive as new areas on a new share (even tested with Everyone - Full Access on share and NTFS permissions)
When logging in it does not work as it should.
However if i log into a machine running Vista, then log out and back into Windows 7, there are no issues at all! Windows 7 cannot create the profile properly perhaps? As i have seen issues where the users roaming profile has confused folder redirection (Points it at C:\Users\%username%) and deleting the users profile has solved the issue.
Either way, profile is created and populated, redirection creates the areas on the home share, however cannot map them properly :(
Anyone had this issue and conquered it?
