Folder redirection is good and bad, well if everything is working as expected then it's definitely good and sometimes it's bad if it causes some unexpected issues such as very slow login.
So you have a folder redirection working smoothly over the years, users can always change their password whenever they want it and of course, System Administrator can also change user password anytime whenever they want it or whenever they just felt like changing it (just kidding), or when situations demand it.
If folder redirection suddenly becomes problematic or causes some issue such as slow login, one issue could be that the user changes the password or the Sys Ad change the user password.
One issue I encountered if the folder redirection suddenly becomes slow, if the client or the user has a mapped drive that is set manually and set to persistent, persistent mapped drives uses the Vault Credential Manager to store the password.
If the password is not updated in the vault credential manager, this will cause an issue for the folder redirection to be very slow.
Of course, the solution is to remove or update the password in the vault credential manager.
The error that will be shown if the persistent mapped drive does not match the new password is
“system error 2251”.
The error does not relate in any way to the folder redirection but it will point to the solution. If no changes made to the group policy, server settings then the only thing it could go wrong is on the client or user's computer.
Errors unrelated is not really unrelated, it is sometimes part of the solution to a big problem.
Cheers. Till next time.
