Group Policy - Map Network Drive to non local path
Posted on 2013-12-03
I'm trying to create a group policy to map a network drive to a folder that is not located on the domain controller/file server. The mapped drive is on the terminal server, so the path is \\terminalserver\sharedfolder
I've created the GPO, linked it to the security group OU, added the map drive settings (added the UNC path, chose replace, re-connect, checked run in logged -on users), added the security group I want it to apply to.
I then go to a workstation and run gpupdate /force and reboot the system.
But the GPO does not apply. I checked gpresult /h - but it's not giving me any errors as to why it's failing.
My guess is that because I'm trying to map a location that is not locally on the domain controller that is why it's not working.
What do you guys think I'm doing wrong? Is it possible to map a folder that's not on the domain controller?
