GPO Mapped Drive

Last Modified: 2014-06-16
We currently run logon scripts on each PC to map the users 'home' drive. The way the drives are set up is that during user creation a user's home directory is  put in \\server##\users\username where ## can be one of several servers. The way the organization was set up we do not have users in OUs which specify/are consistent about which server ## the users home folder is on.

What is the best way to map Home folders with active directory/AD. The user creation ends up specifying a location and the login script maps it. We would like to remove the logon script and have the drives mapped by GPO only - but we would like to do this without manually going through all of our 1000+ users and finding which server # their folder is on.

Thanks for any help!
