Simple group policy not applying...
Posted on 2011-10-22
Trying to add a group policy on a windows 2008 domain controller (we have mixed 2003 and 2008 domain controllers in the domain).
Simple policy to map a drive... a batch file that contains:
net use z: "\\fileserver2\Data"
Plain and simple. I put the batch file in the scripts folder in sysvol. I can double click the script as the user, and the drives are mapped no problem. Also, I can call the script as part of the user's profile (the 'login script' part in his profile) and everything works well. BUT when i try to call it with group policy, with the "logon" in windows settings of the group policy, i get nothing. I know the user has rights to the folder it's in, and can navigate to that folder and run it manually, but group policy isn't running it.
Anyone got any troubleshooting steps I can try?
