redirect administrator start menu & desktop
Hi, I was wondering if you can help me with a problem. I have created an administrator account that the pupils will use (hear me out) to make animations. They may need access to install drivers- really it's to simplyify things for teachers and me. This is a junior school, and I know the children's abilities- certainly not able to 'get into the system'. Anyway, I created the account by copying the adminstrator account in active directory.
I also want to redirect the start menu, desktop, and my docs. I've done this before, and it is working fine with the pupil accounts.
I think I've done all the necessary things to get this special administrator account to have the redirect. However, whenever I log in as that special account, I don't get the special start menu or desktop as dictated by the GPO redirect.
I've tried rebooting, checking permissions on the redirect folders, examing gpresult, nothign springs to mind. Is there something special about an administrator account that says redirection won't work?
GPREsult says that the redirected path of the start menu and desktop are pointing to the server, however the actual desktop and startmenu are showing the icons from the default profile on that machine.
Any thoughts? Thank you!
