I will try to layout the situation as best as possible.
We have a login script that maps all network drives to our machines. The problem comes in that we all have different local drive letters that map multiple devices such as 4 SD Card Slots. Is there a way to "block off" the network drive letters to be used for mapping local devices on the machine.
I have A: B: D: H: and L: being mapped locally.
We are mapping the following letters via network mappings: H:, L:, Q:. S: T:, and Z:
I know I can go to my machine and use "Computer Management -> Disk Management" to just re assign the LOCAL letters of H and L to other letters that don't cross the network mappings BUT that's not the point of this question.
I want way that I can pretty much "reserve" the network letters on the local machines so that network drives can be mapped throughout the office without individually going to each machine's disk management. Can this be accomplished through GPO? Is there a better solution? We do not want to assign different letters to the map drives.
