LogOn Script troubles

294 Views
Last Modified: 2010-05-18
I have recently moved our data storage to a new server (both servers are Windows Server running Active Directory) so I needed to update all users logon scripts to point to the new location. However, there is one network share that is persisting in mapping to the previous server when the user logs in. I have double checked the logon script and everything is fine there. I have also double checked the user profile settings in Active Directory and again everything is fine. (The only thing I havent tried is rebooting the server  but I would assume this to be unnecessary.) Is there any other place that a network share can be set for users or groups of users in Active Directory (or elsewhere) that could be overriding an individual users profile setting for logon script?

We are using the "net use z: /del" syntax for each of the shares in the logon script before creating the share.

I don't have any experience with group policy and the configuaration of. Can any body offer any advice on how I might investigate logon scripts in the group policy.

Thank you in advance for any advice.
