    I want to copy a PDF file to all users’ desktops, so I created a GPP to do this and it works if I place the source file, the PDF, on a shared folder.

    However, my GPP will span a large network, across half the globe, thus having the PDF on a file server in one location will take a long time to copy to users’ workstations in another location. I thus would like to replicate the PDF file along all the DCs using the NETLOGON folder.

    I thus placed the file in the following folder on my local domain controller:

    C:WindowsSYSVOLsysvolbrightstarcorp.comscriptsAPACFiles for APAC users

    In my GPP, I used the following reference for the location of the PDF file:

    Source: %logonserver%NetLogonAPACFiles for APAC usersAPAC IT Support Contact Details final.pdf
    Target: %userprofile%desktopAPAC IT Support Contact Details final.pdf

    Is this the correct way to do this?

    My GPP is created on a Win2012 server for Win2008 domain controllers and Win7 clients.
