Hi All

We currently map our drives via a vb script on users account proprties, we have about 30 mapped drives in the script that are scoped on AD groups.

We are having an AD spring clean and creating a new OU structure and re designing the GPO's so i have the opportunity to change things.

I was considering using GPP's to map the drives but i have noticed a lot of people state it causes slow logins compared to mapping by script.

Interested to hear peoples views.

Thanks

Hi,

In case of  use the users property to map drive, if the server is not available it will take additional time to login as it will wait till timeout for map drive.

In case of script, you specify that if server/drive is not exist do not map, that will he you in case of server/disk outage.

Using GPO for drive mapping is always preferred method as it simplifies troubleshooting and drive mapping on clients as compared to any scripts.
