Does anyone have experience with this problem?
If you configure the Folder Redirection Policy setting in a Group Policy to redirect the My Documents folder, and then apply that particular policy to users with mandatory profiles, the My Documents folder of those users does not redirect to the specified target folder location.

To resolve this behavior, configure the folder redirection setting in a Group Policy, and then apply the Group Policy to the template user account that you will use to create the mandatory profile.
For example: Create a template user account in a test or temporary Organizational Unit (OU), and then create a Group Policy for that OU that will redirect. For example, set the My Document folder to a specified target path, such as \\servername\sharename\username). You can then use that template profile as a mandatory profile for the users who have the My Documents folders that you want to redirect.

Ah, it only affects windows 2000!
IIRC if you created the mandatory profile on 2000 and have continued it onto XP then you can still have the same error. Best to create a new mandatory profile once you are only XP.
Generally speaking, Folder Redirection with My Documents fails because of permissions or lack of. By giving users Full Control of their My Documents drive and in my case I add a $ to make the share hidden, it does resolve most problems, whether it's 2000 or 2003 server.
