My Documents folder redirection

By cblackburn ·
I have turned on folder redirection on our 2003 server. Now, when everyone logs on a folder is being created such as 'u:\%username%\%username%'s documents'

However, on several machines it's not working. These machine were initially setup and imaged using the logon name 'PrepUser'. So now, when I logon as user 'jdoe', the redirection folder that is getting created is called 'u:\jdoe\prepuser's documents'.

Any idea how to fix this? It doesn't appear to be causing any problems, except for the fact it's confusing my users.

You need to use a UNC Path for fold redirection a possible cause is the user is not getting the mapped network drive so therfore is unable to redirect mydocs. If you have not use sysprep on the workstation image you will be getting such problem's if this is the case i Think you may need to sysprep all 7 workstations.
