Have a windows 2008 domain, one server only. Staff home folders are set to 'H' in active directory, but when they log on they get no home folders but they get all the others which are scripted. I checked the script and their notebooks to see if the 'H' letter is being used already but it isn't. Notebooks and staff are in the correct OUs. Is it likely a group polciy issue or could there another script somewhere causing the issue ?

When you say home folders are you changing the Documents folder on the user machines to use this location? Are these machines Windows 7?  I ask because the home folders need to be indexed by the search service on he server to be available as a replacement documents folder.

Please provide a little more information.  Are you using group policy to publish mapped drives to computers or are you using group policy to publish some batch file or vbscript to map drives or are you using My Documents redirection?

Discovered the issue, there was an additional script in the netlogon folder that was linked to another script causing the issue.
