User can access network and folders but does not appear logged to Shared Folder Session RRS feed

  • Question

  • My Apologies if this is posted to the wrong Forum.(If so, where should I post this?)

    We are running Windows Server 2003 and the user computer is running Windows XP.

    This users was recently moved to a new computer which is when the problem began and we obviously missed some configuration setting. I've been recently trying to troubleshoot why this one user's "My Documents" folder is not backing up to the "Shared Folder" on the server. One thing I've noticed is that although the user can access the network and all shared folders, the user does not show up as being active in a "Session" for the shared folders under Computer Management within Server Management.

    The users and computer are listed in "Users" and "Client Computers" on the network. The user has no problem logging into the server or mapping drives. His local "My Documents" folder is mapped to his local user folder which is obviously incorrect. (Will simply changing the target to the server shared folder fix the backup problem and activate his session? Or will that just move the folder contents and "muck-up" everything?) He has administrative level access privileges to the server.

    Can anyone explain where and how I might connect this user so that Shared Folder session are active and, hopefully, back up to the server?
