Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have a group policy object that maps several network drives. This is getting done via group policy preferences. When a user log's on to a remote desktop server the drives are getting connected - so far so good. However when the same user opens another remote desktop session to the same server the drives are not getting maped.

What am I doing wrong here? Any input on this? Thanks in advance

This people are having the same issues but now solution: social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/windowsserver/en-US/… –  Matze May 9 '14 at 12:01
When accessing the RDP sessions a second time, does italic net use <driveletter> \\<UNC path>_italic_ able to manually map the drives? –  Get-HomeByFiveOClock May 9 '14 at 13:26
Thanks for replying. Yes that maps the drive. It seams related to how the group policy engine handles client side extensions in this situation –  Matze May 9 '14 at 14:38
Sounds like gpresult /v is going to be your friend here. Keep us updated if you find out! –  Get-HomeByFiveOClock May 9 '14 at 15:18
according to gpresult /scope user /h out.html the drive mapping preferences are getting applied without any error or warning. so far so good... action is set to 'replace'... mmh –  Matze May 12 '14 at 13:04

Setting the "Reconnect" option within GPP has solved this "issue"...
