Folder Redirection not working on 2000 clients



We have a group policy that redirects the clients "my documents" folder to
%HOMESHARE%%HOMEPATH%. It used to work great. Unfortunately we had to make
a change and it broke the policy. We corrected the problem so the folder
redirection works again. However, since the changes were made, the folder
redirection only works on Windows XP and 2003. Luckily for most of our 2000
clients, the redirection still works because it must be stuck in their
profile. If they log into a new 2000 workstation, it will not redirect the
my documents. If they log into a new xp workstation, it will redirect their
my documents to the correct location.

The event we get is event id 101
source: folder redirection

Failed to perform redirection of folder My Documents. The new directories
for the redirected folder could not be created. The folder is configured to
be redirected to \\%HOMESHARE%%HOMEPATH%, the final expanded path was
\\%HOMESHARE%%HOMEPATH%. The following error occurred:
The specified path is invalid.

Has anyone had this problem before?

I am now just experiencing this issue. Did you ever find a resolution? I
will keep looking and if I find something I will let you know.
