Redirection of Folders in Group Policy not working

We redirect users MY Documents folder from their workstation to a server location. Recently we moved the location of the share on 1 server to another server. After the moving of the files the redirection stopped working and would show errors in the workstation event viewer.

The MY Documents folder was not being redirected to the new server share. We checked the security for the new share and NTFS permissions and nothing seemed to give a clue as to what was going on. After googling the problem, could not come up with any specific solution.

One thing I noticed was that on the AD server running Group Policies, the server was running Windows 2000 Server SP3.
I upgraded the server to Windows 2000 SP4.

This resulted in resolution of the problem.

Apparently this is an issue in SP3 resolved in Sp4.
