Map Network Drive: Group Policy versus Login Script


  • Up until my current company, I have always used login scripts in Active Directory to get the mapped drives to users. My current company uses a group policy to map the drive. Is one way better than the other?

    All users get mapped the same drive, so there is no variations or a different script per user that I would need to build/run. I am moving our DC to a virtual soon and that would be my chance to change the method if needed.

    Thanks for your input!

  • GPP aren't always reliant on logon\startup they also have event logging so easier to troubleshoot and GPP you have Item Level Targeting. Just easier on the whole to setup and maintain
