Creating Mapped Drives and Shares in SBS 2011
Posted on 2011-04-24
After a hiatus from IT, I have just got back in the game, and have run into a SBS 2011 install and cannot believe the idiocy of the new GPP system. Suffice it to say, I am completely flummoxed by the new supposedly wonderful GPP system for creating logon mappings to simple things like drives and printers. I have followed every link I can find and my experience is that the new GPP way of doing things is inconsistent, a pain to use and confusing at best. In a nut shell, it works like crap. Trying to go old school and SIMPLY write a script, attach it to a GPO for client logons, and be done with it doesn’t seem to work anymore. Like most Microsoft “improvements,” I find this new system to be slow, inconsistent and, in a word, ridiculous. Is there any way to bypass the “new” way, and go back to real GPO management? If not, how about a link that shows how to use this junk in the proper manner? Thanks!
