Terminal Services home Profile not mapping

Posted on 2011-02-23

I have some users that when they log onto a terminal server their Terminal Services Home Folder is not mapping.

Its Windows Server 2003 (with AD installed). Users AD account is setup as follws:
Terminal Services Profile
Terminal Services Gome Folder
H:
\\server\Shares\Userdata\%username%

Once the above is entered %username% is replace by the users username. I checked the share and the new folder has been created and the user has Full Control.

When I log in as the user they get no H:. This is massive problems as thje application on that terminal server references files on the uesrs H: and if not mapped no application.

Any ideas?

Thanks

Have you looked your events to see if you have errors?
You could too use a GPO on your TSE server with loopback processing mode on and assign a logon script which map a network drive to H:  (net use h: \\server\share\%username%)
it's a spare way to map the network drive.

HI

Nothing in the EVENT LOGS for this.

We use KIX in our main site for all mapped drives. I didnt want to use that in this site. I wanted AD to do it, as its just one drive.

I will go down route of scripts.

Thanks

OK so did that and the script maps the drive:

"C:\Documents and Settings\usert>net use h: \\-server\shares\userda
ta\user
The command completed successfully.


C:\Documents and Settings\user>pause
Press any key to continue . . ." - I put a pause into the BAT file so I could see results.

However, the application still isnt working. So checked My Computer. The drive is there buts its in a Disconnected state. There is a red X on the drive icon. When I click on the drive it opens without error and the application then works.

I dont want use to have to this (its an easy step but not for this user!!).

Any ideas?

Thanks
