I am running Windows Server 2008 Standard Edition with a Windows XP Pro workstation setup as a test unit.
I have added an Organisational Unit called 'Misc Users' and have linked a GP called 'Basic Security GP' to the OU. Any changes I make to the GP are almost immediately reflected on the workstation. I have removed the control panel, run and setup roaming profiles which map successfully from the H drive to my share on the server.
I want to add another mapped drive as a test. I have created a simple share on the server which is:
So I have edited the GP and added a mapped drive with the following settings:
Action: create Location \\server\miscusers Reconnect: No Label As: Misc Users Use: O Show this drive is selected
but the mapped drive never shows up for my user.
Is there any reason for this? I have prevented the A, C and D drive from being shown in My Computer but as this drive is O it should work.
