Windows 7 Pro - Home Folder not mapping from AD User Profile Setting

DAIIT asked
Medium Priority
Last Modified: 2012-06-27
I have Windows 2003 Server.  In the AD User Profile, it's set to map a drive letter (H:) to a home folder:  Connect H: To: \\server\Users\[user folder].

If I open a CMD prompt and type "net use H: \\server\Users[user folder], the drive mapping works properly. I also have a logon script defined, with additional drive mappings defined, and those work properly. The problem is isolated to the mapping of a drive letter to a home folder, as defined on the Server 2003 user Profile.
This seems to be Windows 7 issue since XP Pro workstations work fine.

Is there any error showing in the event logs?


Event Viewer - Application:  Information - The winlogon notification subscriber <SessionEnv> was unavailable to handle notification event.

This is just an 'Information" level.  I don't think it's relevant to my issue.  I searched the web & there ae many others out there with the same exact issue.
