Hi all :)

I have an odd issue with a couple of users in our wintel server AD environment.

I use a login script for different departments that resides on a shared folder in SYSVOL.

I have a couple of users that have all the mappings when I use the "net use" command but the drives dont show up in their windows explorer

Does anyone know what could be causing this? all users here are running windows 7 pro

thanks
Tracy

Make sure the Advanced Network Settings for the NIC are correct (not Public, but set on Domain).

Then make sure Network Discovery and File and Print Sharing are both set to ON. Review all these settings.  Restart if you change anything.

Check the user permissions to see if something is blocking.

What happens when you run NET USE manually (restart before testing and then test)?

Finally check for Persistent drives. What does NET USE show?
