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 \\\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 "\\\Home-IT\neilh\Desktop".

    Redirection options=9219.

    The following error occurred: "Can not create folder "\\\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:

    I hope it helps.
