We're having an issue trying to create a policy for mapping drives. We're unable to specify a "connect as" username and password.

I'm pretty sure Microsoft removed the functionality to allow you to store credentials in GPOs because it's insecure... Yup: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2962486

So you need to write a script, or connect as the logged in user I believe.

    Would you be able to suggest how to run a script like this? We're connecting between two domains in separate forests that can't see each other and so can't connect as the logged in user

  • @Smock ~ Granted it's been a while, but were you able to solve this? I was able to do so by storing the credentials in the logged in user's profile. Could that work for you?
