I have a user with a Dell Ultrabook that just recently stopped mapping network drives when the user boots it offline (not connected to the LAN).
Drives are mapped via a login script attached to the user's Active Directory profile.
Windows 7 Pro
Windows 2008 R2 domain
User logging into domain and not the local machine (cached profile)
User's H-Drive is set to 'Make available offline' which works fine.
Users 9 other mapped drives are _not_ set to available offline and MUST never be. Too much data to sync on these other shares.
New Windows 7 Installations take days for Windows-Updates to show up and install. This can easily be fixed. I have finally decided to write an article because this seems to get asked several times a day lately.
