Reconfigure Folder Redirection on the Destination Server

Applies To: Windows SBS 2008

If you use folder redirection on the Source Server, you should edit the Folder Redirection Group Policy object on the Destination Server to transfer the redirected data from the Source Server to the Destination Server. When you finish migrating user accounts and groups, you will enable folder redirection on the Destination Server. The instructions for enabling folder redirection are found later in this document.

To edit the Folder Redirection Group Policy object
  1. On the Destination Server, click Start, click Administrative Tools, and then click Group Policy Management.

  2. Click Continue in the User Account Control dialog box.

  3. In the Group Policy Management navigation pane, expand Forest:<DomainName>, expand Domains, expand <DomainName>, and then expand Group Policy Objects.

  4. Right-click Small Business Server Folder Redirection, and then click Edit.

  5. In the Group Policy Management Editor navigation pane, expand User Configuration, expand Policies, expand Windows Settings, and then expand Folder Redirection.

  6. Right-click Documents, and then click Properties.

  7. On the Target tab, do the following:

    1. In the Setting dropdown menu, click Basic – Redirect everyone’s folder to the same location.

    2. In the Root Path text box, type \\<Destination ServerName>\RedirectedFolders, and then click OK.

  8. Click Yes in the warning dialog box.

  9. Close the Group Policy Management Editor, and then close the Group Policy Management Console.
