Dear Experts,

We have a SBS 2003 Server and Windows 7 Clients.  Active directory on the server references a login script which maps 4 network drives.  This has been working perfectly until this morning - however the drives are no longer mapped for any user logging in.

Can anyone suggest how to overcome this.

Thanks

Are there any changes made in the drive letters on the machines locally? Usb disks added or software which adds virtual dvd's?

where any updates aplpied to the server yesterday?

Also, can you try and run the scripts manually? Are they mapping resources by IP or DNS name? If its DNS name, check if you can ping the DNS name.

Usually you can run the script and pipe the results to a txt file. Will be a good starting point for troubleshooting.

When you open a command and go to your netlogon dir and run the login script.
What kind of result do you get.

You first have to figure out if the script will run at all and if so, what error does it show?
