Group Policy Drive Pref

I have enabled a GP to map two drives based on a security group. I am testing on a Windows xp machine fully updated with client side extensions.

I am getting one drive mapped as expected but not the second drive. I enabled logging on the GP and when i look at the application event log on the xp machine it says for both, they applied successfully.

But i only see one drive.

Any ideas?

Did you get the second drive a unique drive letter? Can you upload a report of this GPO?

Try browsing the file path to get to the mapped location and see if the user has permissons

Check the logon scripts for the account. You may have a drive mapping script that could be interfering.

sorry to be posting to this closed question but i just wanted to know something relating to this question really.
If i have a drive mapped using gp preferences and i use item targeting to map to a specific AD group what do i do if i want to add another group so they get that same drive?
