I must be overlooking something simple, but I cannot get a drive to map as part of a GPO on a new SBS 2008 install.
I have a new SBS 2008 install with Vista and XP clients. I joined each workstation to this new domain, thus creating new profiles on the workstations (if I need to get anything from their old profile I know how). This part went just fine, I can log into the new domain as the individual users. I have also set up folder redirection for the users and that works just fine as well.
I modified the Windows SBS User Policy (in Group Policy Management Editor) to make a default IE home page(under Administrative Templates) and a single Drive Map under User Configuration->Preferences ->Windows Settings. The home page works just fine for all users in IE, the drive map will not show up. Here is what I have set in the GPO for the drive map:
Location: \\fs01\(share name)
Drive Letter: Use M:
I can see this share from any workstation if I run \\fs01. I can even manually map a drive to this share.
I have tried several different combinations in the Drive Map settings, running a “gpupdate /force” on the server after every change.
Recap: Part of my GPO policy is working (IE home page), Drive Maps is not.
