Folder Redirect Revisited

Folks,

I'm in an organization with around 20 client WinXP Pro SP1 pc's and one DC - Win2003 Server - Standard Edition. We are setup as a domain and using roaming profiles and folder redirection, generally with great success. However, I've got around 4 users who's profile won't roam correctly nor will their My Documents and Application Data folders redirect out of their roaming profiles to a shared drive on the server. Since some documents in these problematic users' My Documents folders are on the order of 100 or more Mb, it can take a large amount of time to load the profile. Even when loaded, it still isn't roaming correctly, it's just writing the data to c:\documents and settings\%Username%\my documents, for example, instead of writing it back over our 100Mbs LAN to the server.

I've made sure the ACL for our shared profiles folder is correct, per MS Kbase articles 274443 and 232692 and 291087.

On one p.c. that one of these users generally uses, I've implemented userenv debug logging and folder redirection logging. Here's a portion of fdeploy.log:

13:28:44:690 Entering folder redirection extension

The following error occurred while copying <C:\Documents and Settings\kjungbluth\Application Data\Adobe> to <\\Dmx-10\share\home\kjungbluth\Application Data\Adobe>:

Of course these same errors show up in the client p.c. Event Viewer/Application Log.

I've also implemented various GPO's that turn off WinXP's fast user logons. I don't delete the local cached copy of the profile if that matters.

There's more that I've done which should have helped, but didn't and I can't remember it exactly anyway. Per the log snippet above, the errors sure look like ACL problems, but I've been over that with a fine tooth comb. The problematic users, their profiles, and their home directories were created no differently than those that work.

Anyone's help and comments is greatly appreciated.

Shane,

Putting the "1338" error message into net helpmsg at the command prompt
tells us that "The security descriptor structure is invalid." This could be
because the data was originally backed up on a 2000 or NT server and then
restored to a 2003 Server which will create ACLs a little differently;
another possible reason is that the ACLS on this folder were populated using
a custom XCACLs script. In either case, if you sit at the file server and
view the local folder Share\home\kjungbluth\mydocuments\ (or maybe the
desktop.ini file inside of it) you will get a pop-up that says that the ACLs
or the Security Descriptor is invalid and ask you if you would like it to
reorder the permissions for you, select OK and the issue should be resolved.

Adam,

Thanks for the quick reply!

These problematic users/p.c.'s are desktops not laptops. We redirect because we have very large files stored in My Documents, or at least some of us do. I can knock heads around all day and there's always someone who will still store large files in My Doc's instead of just their home directory (which is where My Documents resides).

I'll give your suggestion a try right now and let folks know how it works.

Alan and group:

I should have added more info. to my last reply to you.

The kjungbluth folders were created automatically by the server upon that user's first login so should in theory have the correct ACLS. No scripts were used nor was this folder copied over to the new server from an old NT 4 box we were using.

On the server, as administrator, I went to the \Share\home\kjungbluth\mydocuments and didn't have any access problems - which of course is to be expected as administrator. Normal users can't login to this machine while sitting at it. I'll have to temporarily disable that GP to do it.

Maybe it would be easier to just copy all the file for this user to a temporary location then delete their profile and home directory. Have them logon at a client and then once everything was settled, move their files back into their home directory. What do you think?

Thanks,

Shane

Shane,

While on the server do not connect to \\server\share but go through the
local file system and goto the Security tab to verify the NTFS permissions
and see if it gives you the prompt from before. (For some reason I thought
you said that you were using Offline Files, and not Folder Redirection);
Folder Redirection, great idea; Offline Files for desktops, bad idea.
