Server 2012 Folder Redirection / Windows 7 - modifying existing....
Looking for an answer plz....
Recently VM'd new DC (AD,DNS,DHCP etc).
Server 2012, Win 7 SP1 clients.
I have a physical file server I want to change the IP address of - Have a problem with Folder Redirection.
The file server hosts Folder redirects, Profiles etc.
I have changed the server name successfully - The name resolves fine for batch scripts for mapped drives etc, but need to change the ip address to conform to my new structure.
DNS works fine.
When I change my Folder Redirection GPO from...
the user logs on.... 'Please wait' for ages.... New share overwritten over the old data in the same location.
The client redirects the new path ok, but recreates the users share and deletes all their data - (lots of data hence 'Please Wait' for ages).
Wanted to change the path from IP to Name so DNS resolved the address - then I can change the IP as much as I like.
Any solutions to why the change from specifying a Name rather than an IP address should make the client see it as a different path and overwrite ???
Drivin' me nuts :(
Cheers all : )
