We are having a very strange issue!
Windows 2003/2008 Domain (2003 DCs / 2008 File Servers) Mixed Endpoint Environment - Win XP SP3 / Win7 Ent 1300 Users over several sites within a single domain
Users are experiencing an issue that their drive mappings might or might not show. This can happen with a full restart or log off/on and can be one or more drives.
Most users have 3 or 4 mapped drives PLUS their home mapped drive.
We use GPO for the mapped drives.
A test will show the drive mapping, however after a restart some might not be there.
UNC to the drive paths works
Wait On Network GPO is applied
Running RSOP / GPResult shows that the drive mapping policy has been applied....but not showing.
Net Use shows the same as within My Computer
Disconnecting a drive or Deleting using Net Use makes no difference on if or if not the drive will be picked up upon next login
When the drive is not showing Netstat -a shows no connection (which would be expected)
Running a shortcut from a user’s desktop that points to a drive mapping which isn't showing automatically works and the drive mapping then shows in My Computer etc.
I cannot emphasise enough that this issue is VERY erratic. No users or sites in particular suffer more or less.
Any help or assistance would be greatly received!
