Novell 6 search drive overwrites AD mapped drive when connected to wireless
Posted on 2014-07-28
We are slowly slowly moving things off of an ancient Novell 6.0 (05) server and on to Windows.
We have mapped a shared drive Z: (not my choice) to the windows share where we are moving the files and folders that were once on Novell.
We are mapping this drive through Group Policy (2008) and all is well unless a user connects to the wireless network, which does not allow you to authenticate to Novell upon login, then manually logs in to Novell.
When that happens, the first Novell search drive overwrites the link to Z: and adds its own path.
Oddly, the description of the Z: mapping remains the same "Server_name Shared (Z:)"
Is there any way to block Novell from mapping the first search drive to Z:?
the clients are mostly windows 7.
No, we cannot just move everything at once. there is a clean up process that is occurring concurrently.
