I have a user that has a AD (Windows 2003) loginscript that maps a number of drives. The user has to traverse an external network to login to the domain. It is a pretty reliable connection but it's sometimes slow.
Here's how the loginscript is mapping drives:
net use x: \server\share /PERSISTENT:YES
Sometimes she logs in and no drives show up in my computer. The /PERSISTENT switch should make these drives permanent, but this is not the case. In fact, loginscripts shouldn't even be necessary if you use this switch.
I also set the group policy option for her computer:
computer config\admin templates\system\logon\always wait for the network at computer startup and logon
to enabled. This slows down her startup but decreased the frequency of there being missing drives.
I have windows 7 ent. on my machine and I reboot with the network cable unplugged and my drives show up still. Does anyone know what could cause these drives to disappear? Is there a setting or registry key I'm missing? Another GPO setting to try?
