Dynamically assigning drive letters when deploying drive mappings via GPO
Posted on 2012-09-20
I'm deploying mapped drives by using server 2008r2 GPO's.
I currently have 40 GPO's for the various mappings I need to give and 40 Security groups which I use for the security flitering in the relevant GPO.
For example: If I had a GPO Called Finance to give a drive mapping to a Finance folder, I'd also have a security group called finance in which the relevant users would sit. This finance security group is the only thing specified in the security filtering.
When a user is a member of one the security group there's no problem, however when a user is a member of multiple security groups they'll only get the mapping for the GPO that's applied first. Now I know this is down to the policies trying to use the same drive letter and I could go through each policy making sure there were no conflicts but i'd rather do the drive letter assignment dynamically. Does anyone know a way of achieving this?
