Tearing my hair out - hoping someone can spot my (probably obvious) mistake:
I'm setting up a home LAN running Windows 2008 R2 with Windows 7 Ultimate clients. I'm trying to redirect the various libraries to locations on a separate NAS box.
I've set up a DFS for the NAS under server.private\LAN folders
Documents - basic, mapped to create a folder for each user under:
Music - advanced, for all users in the "Music" group, I'm redirecting to a central share:
\\server.private\LAN folders\Central Music
Pictures - advanced, for all users in the "Pictures" group, I'm redirecting to a central share:
\\server.private\LAN folders\Central Pictures
I've created a user who is a member of both the "Music" and "Pictures" groups. The documents and music folders map perfectly, but pictures is just on the local machine.
I can't find anything different between my music and pictures settings, and the share permissions for the folders are identical (I've even tried changing the policy entry so that the pictures library points to the music folder and works for members of the "Music" group - that doesn't work either).
I've also tried redirecting the "Movies" library in the same way - again this is unsuccessful.
Is there something different in how the "Music" library is managed in Windows compared to the others?
Am clearly doing something stupid - any suggestions on where to look very gratefully received!
