    Angry Windows 7 Clients still looking for old server for redirection

    Hi All

    I'm new to this site so bare with me. I have adopted a school that recently had a new server installed, the old server is still in use as a back up and to run the antivirus console. The GP has been altered to redirect everyone's folders to the new server even the desktop but a lot of clients are still looking for the paths to the old server. I have gpupdate /force both on the server and client machines. I have cleared the cache and local profiles of a client to test, i have disabled fast logons in GP so GP has time to apply the policy and i have enabled redirection policy setting and checked "Process even if the Group Policy objects have not changed". Still clients point to the old server, which is very frustrating. Any kind of help will be much appreciated.

    Have you logged into a computer with a user that hasn't logged into the computer before i.e. creates a new profile.
    Or deleted a profile from an existing user, as I have seen in the past that is the only way to get it to update the folder redirection.

    Thanks

    I have logged in the current users and new test accounts i have created and all of which still look for the old path. Its happening on quite a few of the clients.

    You could have some script running or another group policy somewhere that is refering to the old locations. Dig through the GPOs to check and also ensure that the Home Path and Profile Path in AD are set right.
