    Desktop and Start Menu re-direction HELP

    Hello al and HELP please......
    I am trying to configure desktop and start menu re-direction on Server 2008 R2 on my test virtual server setup. It works ok on my 2003 server with Windows XP and a test Windows 2007 PC, but on server 2008 the re-direction will not apply.

    I think this might be an issue with the fact the Win7 PC has already had desktop and start menu re-direction apply via a 2003 GPO.

    The share is correct and can be accessed by the test user accounts. Here is the event logs - any help please.


    Windows failed to apply the Folder Redirection settings. Folder Redirection settings might have its own log file. Please click on the "More information" link.

    Hi, This problem was now fixed. The issue, in my case, was caused by old profiles; once these were deleted all work ok. Be careful to apply the redirection to the correct users. The best plan is to add the users to a group then apply redirection on a group basis.

    This works better on 2008 then it does on 2003.

    Good luck,

    John
