directing clients my doc dir. to network

By cyberjan ·
I have a user who is newly hired. She is using a pc that was used by another staff person who she replaced. They created a user name for her and directory on the network. Her My doc dir. goes to the old users dir. on the server. Now she wants to switch computers. How do i configure her "my doc dir" Is it by user in profile if that is the case shouldnt it just go in the proper place when she logs on to any computer [which it doesnt] Or is it by workstation.
Also I would like to add powerpoint to the computer. Her c drive is read as a nework drive and will not give me access.
thanks

Where did you set up the policy? Under the user or computer settings on the domain controller. Group policies (including folder redirection) can be set up by computer or by user name. Make sure that the policy is applied to the user and not the computer, that way it should work where ever the user logs on.

Sorry I was incorrect about being able to set up folder redirection according to computer. It can only be done under the user settings on the DC.

with any Windows OS from 98 and on you can just go in when she logs in to her PC and right click on mydocuments on the desktop and change the path to where ever her files are located. You also can use Active Directory to do that .

This is a non-profit agency. The network was set up by a company that doesnt exist anymore. I have some network experience but not in this area. I dont know anything about policies. The pcs are XP.
So how would I install powerpoint, change the my directory to c: install, then change it back to the network drive for her files?
