Folder Redirection policy is not applied to a user, when the server target is changed, but works after resetting the windows profile.

    Question


  • Folder Redirection policy is not applied to a user, when the server target is changed. 

    After server target is changed via group policy, when user login  (roaming profile)first time, the the new server target has not been applied, instead it's pointing to the old folder redirection path.

    But if we reset the windows profile (roaming ), the new folder redirection works, can you please specify a solutions that the new folder redirection works when the user login for the first time. so it reduce the time on resetting users profile.

    it seems that we need to delete the old folder redirection path from the user profile (roaming user profile) via group policy or similar solutions..

    Many Thanks

    Yes - if you change redirection targets, FR moves content from old to
    new, and only if this ends sucessfully, it will update the redirection
    target.
     
    Make the old redirection target accessible to the user and you'll be fine.

  • Thanks Martin, I enabled the  above GPO and tried, no difference.

    The new server is ae2, and ae1 is the old one,  user folder redirection gpo's are updated with ae2.

     But when the specific users login they all get the same error, it seems that the roaming user profiles still keeps the old server details, if i reset the windows profile (client site and server site) then the new folder redirection works fine. it's going to be a tedious task to reset all users' profile.  

    need to fix the issue via gpo, hope you got the exact issue.. Thanks.
