Group Policy Object-Drive Mapping Issue

    Question

  • We have been using Logon script. Now we want to map drives via gpo.

    I first create an OU (A). Inside that OU I create another 2 Test OU (A1 and A2), then in them i create 2 test users respectively. in these 2 separate OU, I create each a Global security group and add those users into it.

     

    On my GPM, I created a single Group Policy and Link it to my OU (A). I have 2 seperate mapped drives.

    I applied Target Group Policy Preference to those Security Groups.

    Now it all works fine, perfectly well with the filtering, Logged of and log back in, drives are mapped accordingly

    Now I want to make a test with one of my old user who uses logon script before because I will soon roll out that policy on our domain,

    With that old user, I remove the default logon script on the AD user profile tab.

    Then i add the old user to one of my Security group in either of them A1 OU or A2 OU group. Run gpupdate/force on the server. Then sign in with that old user.

    Now , No drives are mapped with that old user

    I have checked my default domain Policy that no script is enable on log on and even all other policy that have been implemented.

    If there is any configuration i still need to add..

     

    Very much appreciated for solution

    You need to add the old user to the OU A1 or A2 directly but not add the user to the groups in the OUs. Otherwise, this will not work.

    Same problem as in your other post - the user is in a different OU than
    the GPO...

  • Hi Frank,

    Note that I am adding user the the security group because i am implementing the Group targeting preferences to Security group.
    on the "common" tab when you are mapping drive.

     let me know if you are able to see the settings

    appreciate
