Hello,
    I have three network shares with three different user groups which have access to them on a Windows 2008 R2 server. I have two questions:
1) Do we need to make three different group policy's, one for each group, or can we make one somehow?
2) Does this affect DFS in any way?

Yes you can use a single policy to map different shares to different groups. You can use Item-level targeting found on the Common tab when you go to create the drive mapping policy (in case you don't know where: User Configuration > Preferences > Windows Settings > Drive Maps).
Item-Level-Targeting.pngFrom there you can click on New Item and then assign the drive mapping to one or more Security Groups.

I can't see how this would affect DFS as long as you use the DFS share path for the drive mapping.
