My Documents folder redirection in SBS 2003

    I am having trouble with redirecting My Documents folder. I have a brand new
    Small Business Server 2003 and 15 new desktops running Windows XP Pro. I am
    pretty sure I set the Policy right, since I have done this before. However,
    the folders are not redirecting. The event logs on the server and the
    desktops are reporting the same 2 errors back to back. I get Event ID
    101(source: Folder Redirection) and then Event ID 1085(source: Userenv). The
    Event 101 is saying that Access is Denied in regards to creating or moving
    items to the new location.

    DNS seems to be set up OK. I checked the Time Synch situation. I ran
    gpupdate and regsvr32 on the dektops without success.

    Can anyone help me please???

    Thanks,

    Kbird

  2. In Server Management under Shares (local) there is a link on the right side
    of the page for "Configure My Documents Redirection". Is this what you used
    to set up the redirection?

    Are you trying to redirect them to a folder on the SBS Box? If so, one of
    the choices in the Server Management /backup wizard allows you to redirect
    the My documents folders on clients to be located on a share on the SBS box.

    Hope this helps

    No, I used the Group Polcy Object Editor snap-in. I chose the default domain
    policy.

    I am trying to redirect them to the SBS box by using Group Policy.

  6. One possible reason for an access denied condition is if you request the
    redirection to include the option on the second panel of the GP item which
    say "Grant exclusive access" (or something to that affect), yet the shared
    folder location allows for expanded access for more than just that user.
    This creates a policy violation in that your requested security enforcement
    isn't met, so it denies the policy to run.

    Check these two Kbs for an explanation of what I'm refering to:
