Group Policy Error under - GPO Preferences Mapped Drives

Hi,

I have a standard user that is failing to have a couple of mapped drives complete successfuly through Group Policy Preferences.
They are work for other users and AD group membership looks correct for the user in question.

Running GPResults shows an error code - 0x800704dc

Does anybody have information on this error or guide me on how I can gain more details?

Thanks

Dean

I found this regarding the error "The operation being requested was not performed because the user has not been authenticated."

Is this user using cached credentials when logging into said machine?

Have you had this user log into a different machine in your environment?

Does this user get any drives mapped or are all mappings failing?

Hope this helps.

Thanks for helping.

I am not seeing anying logged in the clients machine event log.... it states that Group Policy processing completed successfully. The only indication of the error condition is in GPM running GPresults check.

The user has the same problem when logging into different machines.

4 drives are mapped through GP Preferences... 2 are mapped to Windows Shares and are successful. 2 are mapped to HTTP Shares and are unsucessful.

Cheers

Can this user successuffy gain access to the web shares via URL?

I would look into the web permissions (I am assuming IIS is the web server) it seems odd that the GPO is successully mapping folder shares and not to the Web shares, which leads me to believe that there are permission issues with the Website. Are you using diercory security on the website in question?

I agree, and so I had this checked.

The user can navigate to the URL in question successfully.

Strange?

I have seen incedences recorded whereby Local Admin users have had issues due to an issues with UAC and registry settings, but nothing of this sort.

I am frustrated more by not knowing what the error code means... if I could better understand this, I might be able to direct my efforts better.

Cheers

I completely agree it can be very frustrating. You said "I have seen incedences recorded whereby Local Admin users have had issues due to an issues with UAC and registry settings, but nothing of this sort."

Is this a Vista machine you user is running or are you doing a results test via GPMC?

As far as the error code everything I am finding points to the below.
I found this spreadsheet, great spreadsheet with a whole mass of error codes and descriptions,  and that is where I got the comment on "The operation being requested was not performed because the user has not been authenticated"

Here is the list in HTML format i found via technet:

it says the same thing about an authentication error.

What do the security logs say on the DC as well as the webserver?
