Folder Redirection with %username% not setting in policy


  • Need help

    Trying to set this for Folder Redirection Path - for example Desktop


    It does not accept this - goes back to \\sername\Profiles i.e the server/share

    I can enter \\server\%username% but trying to create all the Homedrives under the Profiles directory (which is the share)

    Why can't I enter the path ?

  • I think it does some weird thing where it takes off the full path that actually gets redirected. Is there a bit below it that says for Claire this will be \\server\share...\Desktop? If so, I think that gives you the full path, you just can't see what it is. Not to be smart but have you tested to see if it works?
