    I have searched and searched but can not find out why my redirection doesn’t work.

    I am moving users from one domain to another and then moving their profiles over. I have everything working fine. Now, I want to redirect their documents to either their home folder (as set in AD) or even just to a UNC path (that leads to the same place as their home folder) which is a share on a server (\nt01Userdocs).

    I have tried every option for “Target folder location” and pointed to the UNC path. I have checked the “Apply to XP, 2003…” on the settings tab.

    I have tried applying the GPO to the user and the computer. There are no errors in the event viewer on the workstation or server.

    I can manually set the My Documents path from the workstation and it works fine.

    We are migrating from 2003 to 2008 domain and the workstations are XP. I have not given users local admin permissions which I have read about, but it doesn’t seem to be a requirement on Technet.

    The only think I can think of is that all of the users have their folders manually redirected (a setting from the old domain) Does this cause an issue? Is there a way around it?

    I am at a loss.
