dfs not mapping

I have a new DFS that is set up. I am able to get users to find it by using the run command and putting in \\domain.local\DFSname and it will come up. I am trying to map this because the DFS holds the home drives for each user. I had a DFS mapped using group policy and server 2003. I have the DFS on a 2012 R2 server and it is referencing a drive on a 2003 server. How do I map using the policy? i am using: \\domain.local\hdrives\%username%

I have seen some things that say use %netlogon% and have seen that a hot fix is needed?

read the article. I can declare that the DFS is working as I wanted. Users can connect to it by going to the run command and going to \\domain\share and see the folders. They have the access to only their folder. Now the question becomes the mapping. It will not map. I have a general log on policy that maps drives and shortcuts but will not map this drive.

I created a new step in the policy and now it works. it must have been an old sid that no longer worked.
