GPO dive mapping works on Server 2008 r2 but not 2012 r2


  • This starts to drive me mad, it should not be an issue but it is.

    I have a Windows 2008 r2 domain and a Window 2012 r2 secondary domain controller in Amazon EC2. In amazon I have to Windows server joined to the domain. I have many windows 2008 r2 servers joined to the domain.

    The 2012r2 servers connects to the AD in amazon.

    I have a policy that maps a couple of shares maps to a few drive letters. This workes perfectly in windows 2008 r2 but my 2012 r2 server refuses to map the shares even if the policy is applied. Gpresult say so,   C:\Users\user\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Group Policy\History say so.

    Not even a batch logon script works.

    However I can manually run "net use g: \\xxxxxx\" and it maps. So there is no permission issue

    I hopped this ( was the solution when I saw it but no.

    Is it something amazon does to its VM´s?

    Where else can i look?
