Failed to perform redirection of folder My Documents

 Dear All,

I want to share this case with you.
When you planned to migrating your infrastructure you may need to change users roaming folders and their mapped drive.
Accually you may face some issues while changing their new redirection target.
If you find an error at event viewer as below:
The event ID: 112 and 1085.

"Failed to perform redirection of folder My Documents. The files for the redirected folder could not be moved to the new location. The folder is configured to be redirected to <\\Server2\home\%USERNAME%\My Documents>. Files were being moved from \\server1\home\user to <\\server2\home\user\My Documents>. The following error occurred while copying <\\server1\home\user\Ashraf\MUM\GLOBAL\2009\AR\revi wed\Copy of file.xls> to <\\server2\home\user\My Documents\Ashraf\MUM\GLOBAL\2009\AR\reviwed\Copy of file.xls>:

The specified network name is no longer available. "

You may need to do some troubleshooting as below:
1.May be two GPOs were being applied, one at the domain level and the second at the OU level. Both handled folder redirection. The Group Policy Results Wizard showed that neither of the GPOs were actually being applied. If the user having trouble logged on to another computer, the GPOs and folder redirection worked properly. If any other user logged on to the problematic computer, folder redirection worked properly. The solution was to rename the local copy of the user's profile and have the system recreate it by using a "fresh" copy of the user's roaming profile.

2.When using basic folder redirection directing “C:\documents and settings\(name)\my documents” to “\\share\(name)\my documents”. The problem was the user’s permissions on their user-name folder (\\share\name), where not giving access to the user. Correcting permissions fixed this error.

Our case solution was to rename current profile "profile1" and made a new profile "profile2" with copy all data from "profile1" to the new profile "profile2".

The difference between DNS and NDS

  Novell Directory Services(NDS) - Novell Directory Services (NDS) is a popular software product for managing access to computer resources and keeping track of the users of a  network , such as a company's  intranet , from a single point of administration. Using NDS, a network administrator can set up and control a  database  of users and manage them using a  directory  with an easy-to-use graphical user interface ( GUI ). Users of computers at remote locations can be added, updated, and managed centrally. Applications can be distributed electronically and maintained centrally. NDS can be installed to run under  Windows NT , Sun Microsystem's Solaris, and IBM's  OS/390  as well as under Novell's own  NetWare  so that it can be used to control a multi-platform network. NDS is generally considered an industry  benchmark  against which other products, such as Microsoft's Active Directory, must compete. Lucent Technologies plans to integrate NDS into its own QIP product
