Folder redirection for Desktop RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have edited the default domain policy to redirect the desktop of all users to single location. However the policy is not getting applied to all users. I have checked the users gpresult output. Its not as per the policy settings. Also the Folders of all users are visible to the users where the policy gets applied. Though the other users folders are not accessible to the logged in user, I don't want to show all the user's folders except the logged in user's folder on the logged in user's desktop.

    What could be the issue that the policy not getting applied to all users?

    How to restrict the desktop to show only logged in user's folder?

    With Best Regards,

  • Hi,

    Please refer to the following Microsoft TechNet article for how to troubleshoot Group Policy issue.

    Troubleshooting Group Policy Problems

    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc787386(v=WS.10).aspx

    If the issue persists, would you please upload the following log files to me here for our further research?

    Collect GPMC log
    ==============
    1.   On domain controller, click Start -> Run, type GPMC.MSC, it will load the GPMC console. If the GPMC snap-in is not installed.
    2.   Right click on "Group Policy Result" and choose wizard to generate a report for the problematic computer and user account (please place appropriately). (Choose computer and select the proper user in the wizard)
    3.   Right click the resulting group policy result and click the "Save Report…" => save report and upload it to the link I provided.

    Collect gpresult output
    ==============
    1. Run the command gpresult /v >C:\gpresult.txt.
    2. Upload the C:\gpresult.txt to the above link.

    Then you may create HTML reports and compare each individual setting.
    Also, did you check the event logs??? (System, Application, Group Policy).
     

    NO THEY ARE NOT EVIL, if you know what you are doing: Good or bad GPOs?

     Check RSOP for the users not receiving the policy. Also, check Event
    Viewer "Application" and "Group Policy" log for warnings or errors.

     Enable access based enumeration on the server.

  • Hi,

    Thanks for the reply.

    The second issue got resolved with steps suggested by you.

    The first issue is still not resolved. I have already checked gpresult as well as RSoP output for both the users one with Destop folder redirection applied successfully and another with problem. Both have same group policy objects assigned.
