Drives not Mapping upon login

I have two servers:

- Same Domain
- Same OU
- Same Group policies
- One of these group policies map a network drive
- Box has same 2008 OS, Ram, and all

ServerA - login as me and I get the drive
ServerB - login as me and I do not get the drive

Only difference between the two servers (that I can think of) one has Terminal Server installed.  The one with Terminal Services is the one I do not get the drive when I RDP to the box.  

As stated I can RDP to both boxes (these are virutal) and yield different results.  I can run gpresult on both servers and yield exactly the same results for both user and computer.

What could be wrong?

Rights to the sysvol to one of the machines?
Have you tried adding a PAUSE command to the logon script to see if it at least runs something on the server that you do not see it running at all?

Yes I am local admin on both and the drives are not mapped via a script, they are mapped via drive maps in the group policy user configuration.

Do you mean Group Policy Preferences?

actually, this may sound simplistic, but if you're logging in via RDP, the terminal services configuration could be blocking it.
look in terminal services configuration manager and check the properties of your RDP-Tcp connection and make sure that drive mapping isn't disabled, granted i forget if that refers only to remote/local drive mapping via the mstsc client
