Hoping to get some detailed assistance here. I need to implement both folder redirection and offline files GPO's for all of local users in my corporate office. I have both desktop and laptop users. Their files need to be redirected up to their respective "personal" folder or their Z: on the file server. I also need to implement Offline files for my laptop users *only* so when they are out of the office, they will have their files available locally. My main issue is that with my current OU structure, I have corporate office and remote users intermixed in the same OU's. I do have corp office laptops and remote laptops separated.
Can anyone describe for me in detail what they have implemented in their environment that is similar to this that works effectively. I am thinking of using a single redirection GPO for all users and filtering based on security to exclude the remote users.
I was going to make a Corporate Office Users group and add just those users in that group and apply the security filtering there. With the Offline files, i was thinking to apply it at the Laptops OU as it will only effect the local users laptops.
BTW, all desktops/laptops are Windows XP Sp3 and the DC is a 2003 R2 server.
Here is another post that is somewhat similar and is very detailed that I have been using to muddly through my setup.
