I'm running Windows 2003 R2 for DC's. The question has come up concerning mapping user's network shares via GPO rather than the tradition login scripts. I've read about updating Windows 2003 server with the 2008 Client Side Extensions so that the Group Policy Preferences (GPP) can be seen and used. My questions are:
- Does the CSE update get applied to the Win 2K3 DC's
- If number one is "No", how do I see and edit the GPP to map the drives?
- Does the CSE update get applied to the XP client machines as well?
- If number three is "Yes", will this work for thin-clients?
In the next couple of months, we'll be installing some 2012 servers into the domain.
Any other advice is most welcome.
