Group Policy for folder redirection
Hi to all IT coleagues, Recently I am having following issue: There is an active Group Policy for Folder redirection in our domain. "My Documents" and "Desktop" are redirected to the home folder on a file server. The policy worked fine, but nearly a month ago, I found out, that newly added client - machines did not apply the policy - their "My Documents" and "Desktop" folders are not redirected to the home folder. I double-checked the settings in AD GPO Editor - all seems to be OK, additionally the policy works fine on older machines. However, if I re-install an old machine, or add a new one in the domain, the folder redirection doesn't work (no synchronization happens)... Any ideas for troubleshooting will be highly appreciated.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Windows Server has a feature called Group Policy Object Modeling. This feature allows you to determine the effective group policy for a user and / or computer. I suspect that maybe you have a contradictory group policy setting that is coming into play. Using Group Policy Object Modeling is an easy way to find the problem.
