I normally logon to the work windows network through a vpn connection from home with the same laptop I use at work.
When I am at work an I am wired to the network, everyday my logon script runs and I can get to the mapped drives.
When I go home and it is using the cached logon, I do not get all my drives available.
I suspect it is because I may have selected to disconnect a few of them while playing, and now the are no longer an option.
Is this mapped information (or lack of information) related to the cached account info not being updated?
What do I need to do to restablish those connections?
Do I need to provide people with logon scripts to run from home after they connect through the VPN, or is there something easier.

Thank in advance

Bill

I am making an assumption here, but your users logoff the laptop before taking it home, and then login and use the cached profile when they get home.  Is this correct?

If so, then you need to configure your VPN to run a logon script when they connect to it.  You didn't specify what solution you are using for the VPN, so I have no real suggestions for that.  Otherwise, you could create a batch file to be run that will remap the drives for them.
