Drive map "priority"


J

Jeff Brooks-Manas

All,

There are some drive letters that map no matter what script the users have,
and I 'm not sure why... The drives were never mapped using a net use
statement or script, and yet the continue to appear. Adding net use u:
/delete /y before the mapping statement gets rid of them, but I want to know
why they are there in the first place. The drives that map are on the
original AD controller.

Thanks!

Usually left over from some prior boot. The default is to map
"persistently"
so if a user has ever mapped that letter (without a later /d ) then it is
probably
still mapped.

This happens on the first login. The script just maps two drives, and yet
there are 5 shares mapped.

Thanks!

First login? Then this must? be coming from either the default profile
(did you guys setup custom default profiles) or from a GPO, etc.

I don't think that the machine can do this on it's own (e.g., no "computer"
registry setting does this -- I believe.)

How about GPOs?

I don't think the "All Users" profile can do this -- it only appends stuff
to
the Start Menus & Desktops.

How about unexpect script files or startup programs? (User properties on
the Profile tab, etc....)

GPO's was the ticket. I set up the main server so long ago that I forgot all
about that.

Thanks!
