I have created a group policy to set up Folder Redirection. The client computers are all Windows 10 Enterprise. I followed these instructions.
Additionally, I gave the "Domain Computers" and "Authenticated Users" groups read permissions on the GPO.
For the purpose of testing, my regular and elevated domain accounts are the only ones in the group. Also for testing, I'm only redirection "Desktop" and "Documents". When I logged into a Windows 10 computer, the redirection did not happen at all. GPResult shows that the GPO applied successfully, the settings just are not implemented. Eventually, I also created WMI filter for Windows 10. This by itself did not fix my issue. GPResult showed WMI filter as true, but still didn't apply the settings. Through more testing, I found that a newly imaged Windows 10 computer would redirect my folders properly. I decided to remove my profile from a computer that I had already logged onto and folder redirection was not working. After removing the profile and logging back in, the folder redirection works.
But I cannot do this manually for all the users and computers in our organization. I need to find the reason this is not working when a user has already established a profile.
A duplicate GPO with no WMI Filter is used for logging onto servers (all servers are Server 2012 R2). Redirection works as intended on Server 2012 R2. No need to remove existing profiles.
I followed troubleshooting steps from this site and found nothing helpful. Even the trace file showed no failures.
Any assistance on what else I could do to troubleshoot this would be greatly appreciated.
