Product Line: VERDE
offers built-in document redirection functionality in the virtual
desktop (guest), by default the Windows "Document" folder will
automatically be redirected to the virtual desktop D: drive. Some
customers may need to redirect the Windows “Documents” to a shared network drive. The
information below gives Windows administrators information on how to
1. Set the NTFS permissions
Create the folder in the desired location (i.e. X:\usershare)
From the new folder properties, disable inheritance of permissions from the parent and remove all inherited permissions by clicking the appropriate button.
One entry will already be in the DACL: Local Administrators.
These permissions enable users to create their redirected folder in the root folder, but restrict the ability to browse the contents of other folders. Best practice dictates that you should allow the redirected folder locations to create themselves as users log on.
2. Create the share and add share permissions
Share the root folder created earlier as \\SERVER\usershare (or if you want to hide it, \\SERVER\usershare$\)
Adjust the share permissions as follows:
3. Configure the Group Policy Object (GPO)
Once the user logs in (for example:juser) then the following folders (in bold) will be created on the shared drive c:\usershare\juser\Documents and “Documents” that used to redirect to \\host\Shares\Documents (default) will be redirected to \\SERVER\usershare\<user>\Documents.
