Group Policy responsible for Desktop folder share

    Question

  • We got 100 users using Terminal Server. There Desktop folder has been redirected to a specific location on a different server.

    Now we have to move the location of this Desktop share to a different server but have no clue which policy was doing the this. Login Script also has no mention of this Share.

    Is there a way to check what group policy is responsible for Desktop folder Share on Terminal server?

  • Hi,

    Basically, in order to force folder redirection on the terminal server we have to do this:

    - Create a GPO and link it to the OU containing your TS

    - In that GPO set required folder redirection

    - In the same GPO enable Loopback Processing (so that Folder Redirection would work only when the users log on to that server)

    To check what group policy is responsible for Desktop folder Share on Terminal server, we could run GPRESULT/r and RSOP to perform the checking.
