User Map Network Drives, Not being applied, not working

    Question

  • In the amount of time I have spent on this GPO I could have manually mapped everyone's drives.

    I created a very straight forward Policy and have edited and tested it several times in accordance with the myriad of "Solutions for this Issue" (all of which are different) and lo no amount of radio button combinations will allow my User profile to grab a hold of this GPO and apply it to my User.

    I am running server 2008 r2, I have a Win7 Pro test machine in the domain. 

    I simply wanted to map a drive for one user group with a path to a server share. 

    If anyone feels that they are savvy enough to help me, please help me. Prostrate, I humbly beg of you: help me.

  • Have you confirmed that the user is processing the GPO? How are you mapping the drive in group policy? Are you using a script or group policy preferences?

  • I can't say that I have confirmed that the user is processing the GPO. I am not sure how that is done. This is my first go in Group Policy Management. I am using policy preferences to map the drive.

    On a client where the affected user has logged on (or IS logged on),
    open GPMC.MSC, expand the domain node and right click the bottom node
    "Group Policy Results". Select the current computer, then select the
    affected user.

  • Hi,

    With Martin's help, are you able to confirm if the gpo applied successfully?

    Looking forward to your feedback.

    Best Regards,

  • Hi,

    You can log on the clients open the Command Prompt, and type: gpresult/r

    In that way you can check the applied group policy for the computer and current user account.

    Also, you can go through the link below, it introduced how to map a drive via group policy.

    Feel free to post back, if you have any questions.

    Best Regards,

    Elaine
