I understand that both "Folder Redirection" and "Drive-Mapping"-CSE require synchronous GPO processing. However both CSE's are working here without having to force the GP-Client to work synchronously by setting "Always wait for the network at computer startup and logon" to "Enable" (some warnings show up in the log and rsop, saying user needs to log on again etc... yada yada, we all know them well).
Now I am wondering if the GP-Client has some kind of logic built in that allows it to distinguish between CSE's that need sync or async processing and arranges them accordingly in the startup- and/or logon process. Or are this just old settings within my testing-profile that make this CSEs "appear" to work? I hope you get my point.
As we are facing very bad startup- and logon times I am wondering if I really have to enforce the GP-Client into synchronous processing mode by setting "Always wait for the network..." to "Enable" or if I can leave it unconfigured even when using folder redirection/drive-mapping CSE and accept the necessity of having to log in twice to make the changes appear?
