Just a quick blog post if anyone else finds the same problem after following Microsoft’s article on setting up Redirected Folders
In my test environment everything went well except I noticed I wasn’t able to access the users file on the file server under the domain or local admin accounts.
To fix this, go back to your GPO and navigate to User Congiruation > Policies > Windows Settings > Folder Replication and modify the properties for each Redirected Folder and uncheck ‘Grant the user exclusive rights to foldername‘
Of course, don’t forget to perform a gpupdate /force on the computer, however the setting does not seem to change the permissions of existing folders in the share. If anyone knows a better way or a way around this, feel free to leave a comment!
