A quick thanks to a very useful bunch of people, been reading for a while and it seems that i am not suffering alone :D However, the school i work for (which means me) has this problem:
Two servers one W2k3 and one W2k, the newer one for curriculum and the other for Admin(we had another but someone else found out what happens if you boot to CD and don't know what you are doing :twisted: )
The first issue is folder redirection(i have read most of the posts on this) not working for all students ALL of the time. I am only redirecting desktop and start menu its very temperamental. The GP i have(vbs script) for setting default printer per room(OU) only works when the full set of policies work.
All of this started when the curriculum server was upgraded. I have checked(today) after reading about the SYSVOL and FRS to discover that not only is that not working(path not found) but GPM on the W2k3 server has completley lost the will to find anything and just reports errors.
Have tried stopping and restarting the service as per error message and running Net Share. :?:
So... i thought i would share a few of my woes instead of continuing fishing through microsofts Volumes of 'help'.
Thanks in advance :D
