Folder Redirection onto a NAS RRS feed

  • Question

  • My Setup

     

    IBM X3500 Windows 2003 R2 64bit Std Server

    Vista Business Machine

    Windows XP Pro Machine

     

    I've set-up the server as a domain controller and set-up some users e.g. neilh.  also in group policy set-up folder redirection onto a share on a Acer EasyStore 1TB NAS.

     

    I've set-up the nas for domain authentication and the users are there.  Also set-up some security groups on the domain controller e.g. IT.  So i created a Share called Home-IT and assigned the gorup IT Read and Write access.

     

     

    Logged into the XP Pro machine and when i click "My Docs" it's the folder on the nas \\10.50.50.6\Home-IT\neilh\My Documents. i can create folder and documents fine. 

     

    But when i log into the Vista machine with the user neilh i get the following error and folder redirection doesn't work:-

     

    Failed to apply policy and redirect folder "Desktop" to "\\10.50.50.6\Home-IT\neilh\Desktop".

    Redirection options=9219.

    The following error occurred: "Can not create folder "\\10.50.50.6\Home-IT\neilh\Desktop"".

    Error details: "This security ID may not be assigned as the owner of this object.

    ".

     

    But yet it works fine in XP Pro.

     

     

    Any ideas?

  • Hi,

     

    I would suggest that go to group policy properties on DC: folder redirection gpo\user configuration\windows settings\folder redirection\my documents ->properties and unchecked "grant the user exclusive rights to my documents" .

     

    This tells folder redirection not to do the ownership check and assume the permissions are OK

     

    After that please re-login.It may took time for 5 minutes as it was synchronizing with the server.

     

    By the way, the following article may helpful, for your reference:
