Mapping a Specific Drive with a RemoteApp
Posted on 2014-04-11
Hi, we have a remoteapp (windows 2008 R2) that users have on their desktop. As expected users click the remoteapp rdp icon and the app opens seamlessly on their PC desktop.
The app comes in two flavours (one for company A and one for company B) and both apps require the O drive to be mapped on the terminal server profile itself (not locally but on the terminal server session / profile), but for company A the O maps to share \share_one and for company B the O drive needs to map to \share_two. Basically O drive but different share names. It's all to do with how the application works and this cant be changed.
The problem we have is that if a user needs to use both apps, when she clicks the second one the O drive is still mapped to the old mapping and the second program errors.
Is there a good way to get a remoteapp to map a drive on the TS before it runs the program. So that if the user (who will still be logged on to the terminal server) comes out, clicks the second app will then get the correct drive re-mapped?
I understand about redirecting drives amd GPOs but that doesn't give the ability to map a specific drive each time a remoteapp is run.
