We've recently moved away from using a login script to map network shares and are now mapping via group policy preferences. This has been working great except I recently discovered that when our laptops are away from the domain the drive mappings are causing slow logins. It looks like every drive that is mapped adds about 15-20 seconds to the logon time. This is acceptable for users that only have a few mappings but for those that have 5 or 6 mappings the time is excruciatingly slow. Does anyone know an easy way for the mappings to only apply when clients are on the domain? Or if that's not possible is there a way to decrease the time it takes for the drive mappings to attempt to connect to the remote network share?
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!
