Mapping Drives using Item level Targeting based on Computer Netbios Name using variable logic
Posted on 2011-09-11
Below is an example of what I am looking to accomplish using Windows 2008 group policy item level targeting. The key is that I would like to do this without having to create a seperate item level targeted map entry for every single computer. I wopuld like to simply create one entry using variables and logic. This is something that I presently have in place using scripting but would like to move to eliminate the logon script and use GP exclusively.
- Computer names are computer1, computer2, computer3,... etc.
- Shares on server are computer1$, computer2$, computer3$,...etc.
When a user logs on to computer 1 they receive the mapped drive computer1$, computer2 gets computer2$, and so on.
