Besides tweaking the SBS Folder Redirection Policy to point to the standalone server and the share that will be used as base for the user’s root redirected folder, we need to make sure that the permissions on the base folder are set properly before things start to work.
Unfortunately the base NTFS permission set that the SBS server sets to its own folder redirection share will not work when we are dealing with a separate server.
So, what we need to do is the following:
- CREATOR OWNER
- Domain Users
With those permissions set at the NTFS (Share = Everybody: FULL) folder redirection should work without a hitch.
