GPO's being applied but drives are not getting mapped XP Client 2008 server


We have setup new 2008 GPO's to map network drives.  GPRESULT says the policies are being applied, but the drives are not being mapped.  

Help!  I dont even know what to check when it says the GPO is applied...  Tried a gpupdate/force, no luck...

Make sure you have installed the Windows XP Group policy extensions. Post gpresult.

Check the path names are correct and that the clients have access.

That paths are correct.  They were mapping find yesterday from a login script but we decided to start using GPO's for drive mapping.
Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

I would try to run gpupdate /force on all machines and then reboot them. Many policies do not take effect until you reboot. Good luck!

Do the policy extension have to be run on every machine?  Wouldnt this normally come via windows update?

did you add the script used to map to the new location for the GPOs? and then did you link the GPOs?

you have to install the Windows XP Group policy extensions on the Windows XP client  or deploy it via gpo

No did not add script.  we are stricly using the 2008 GPO drive map feature.
