Windows Small Business Server 2008/2011 + New User + Group Policy Folder Redirection

In previous versions of Winows Small Business Server - such as Windows Small Business Server 2000 and Windows Small Business Server 2003, Folder Redirection was typically contained within a single Group Policy object, the Default Domain Policy.  You could edit the Default Domain Policy directly or use Server Management - Configure My Documents Redirection which applied Folder Redirection to all Existing and New Users.

In Windows Small Business Server 2008/2011, Folder Redirection is now a separate Group Policy entitled Small Business Server Folder Redirection Policy.  Folder Redirection is now typically defined by user on an individual basis using the Windows Small Business Server Console.

If you create a New User in Windows Small Business Server 2008/2011, you will want to be sure to open the Windows Small Business Server Console  (previously named Server Management) and click Redirect Folders for User Accounts to the Server.  You will then want to place a checkmark next to your New User and click Apply.  Group Policy will then be properly applied after performing gpupdate /force on the Client.
