Creating a new folder and drive map with Preferences

    Question

  • So I am trying to set things up using GPP so that users of a particular security group get a U:\ drive at the following location:

    \\server\share\%username%

    I have set up the drive map preference & also a folders preference (to create the user's folder).  The problem is that it works BACKWARDS and the drive tries to map prior to folder creation and thus fails, THEN the folder gets created.  So that the 2nd time the user logs in they actually get the U:\ drive at the correct location.  The goal is to have the folder created and mapped to on the 1st try for the user.

    How can I get this working WITHOUT resorting to scripts, folder redirection, or manually setting the U drive on the AD Profile?  I just want that folder to be created for only users in the proper security group, and then have the drive map to it.


    # When I wrote this script only God and I knew what I was doing. # Now, only God Knows!

    You cannot. The execution order of GPO parts (called Client Side
    Extensions) cannot be changed, so you're stuck with this error if you
    don't resort to a script :)
