Logon script not working correctly in Windows Server 2008 x64 TS
I have a client that needs their users to map back to their local c: drive as w: while logged into a terminal session. I created an OU just for the terminal server then created a GP for it I set loop back to enable replace I then changed User Configuration/Administrative Templates/System/Scripts scripts synchronously to enable. Lastly I added a logon script to the GPO. It is a simple .bat file with one line as follows:
Net Use W: \\%ClientName%\C$
If I run this command as written manually from cmd on the TS it works fine even as a regular user. If I enable this same script for any other computers in the domain it works perfectly. However this script is not mapping the drive on the W2K8 x64 TS when you connect from a winXP computer. However if you RDP from a vista machine the script correctly maps the drive. When I put a pause in the file I can see that when it is not running correctly the CMD window shows the line as Net Use W: \\\C$ and that does not get us anywhere. So how do I get the drives to map correctly from the windows xp computers on the 08 x64 terminal server?
