Redirecting of previously redirected shell folders by GPO with ProfileUnity is not working.

Product: ProfileUnity

Problem: 

I am trying to redirect my desktop to new network location and its not working. I have previously redirected my desktop using GPO and ProfileUnity is not overwriting this setting. 

 

Symptoms:

Currently I am redirecting desktop \\Server_01\usershare\Desktop and I do want desktop to redirect to \\Server_02\usershare\Desktop

I have already copied the files between the servers. I just need to redirect the desktop to new location.

 

Possible Resolution(s):

Verify that settings are configured correctly:

Setting A) "Only Redirect Local Shell Folders" Should NOT be enabled. When this option is checked and the shell folder is a UNC path or Mapped Drive we will not redirect or copy or sync from that location.  This setting is to prevent accidental override of a shell folder which is already redirected by GPO or other 3rd party software. 

Setting B) "Existing Files" should be set to "No Change" This is because the files are not need to be copied from "Server_01" to "Server_01" the only change which needs to happen is the folder redirection.
