Group Policy Different Policy Based on PC logged into

Hi All,

I have a domain with 2 sites, the domain is replicated over a WAN and one user logs in at both sites.

Problem is when is site A he needs access to drives mapped to server A, but when in site B they need to be mapped to Site B.

As drive mapping is a User policy I can't work out how to specify applying a different policy based on what site or computer the user is connected too.

Can any one offer any help with this?

You can do item level targeting on the drive mappings and use IP range

User logs into computer at location A that has IP range 192.168.1.0 - 192.168.1.255 and gets drive map from Server A


User logs into computer at location B that has IP range 192.168.15.0 - 192.168.15.255 and gets drive map from Server B

I used to use it all the time to provide mapped printers, drives and many other things based on IP ranges. Management loved it also because it reduced call volume to the helpdesk
