Im trying to use drive mapping using GPO and preference but its not mapping. I attached a screen shot. What could I be doing wrong?

Is there another way to map drives other than a script. I have over 4k machines.

Im using 2008 server.

you forgot to attach screenshot, probably.
you can define user home folder in AD user properties, but to do this manually for thousends of users is not a good idea.
then you can create GPO (as I tried)
logon script
or import homefolder as I mention at the beginning useing a command - import from file

if you log in into machine as some user who should have Q drive mapped and try Start>Run>\\Printers_win7
does the user have permission to access that resource?
did you connect GPO to correct OU?

when you run gpresult -r command in command prompt on computer you are logged as user who should have drive mapped, are you able to see that GPO applied?

Are you sure that this isn't conflicting with an existing drive mapping?  I always use Update instead of Create just to make sure that if there's an existing mapping it will change it.

On your screen shot "Hide/Show this drive" what happens when you click the radio button "Show this drive" and click "Apply" ????
