SBS 2011 can't map drives for a computer

I'm accustomed to using login scripts on older versions of SBS, but now am helping with an SBS 2011 Standard server that is already configured.  I migrated a user's desktop to a laptop and after adding the new laptop to the domain, the user's mapped drives don't appear.

I checked AD and the new computer seems to be in the same OU as the old computer. When I didn't see login scripts defined in AD, I poked around in GP to see if I could figure out where the mapped drives are defined.  Under MyBusiness, Computers, SBSComputers there are some policies (Windows SBS Client Policy, etc.), but I can't find anything related.

Please help troubleshoot and determine where the drive mappings are defined so I can set them up for the new computer?

Are you perhaps on wireless vs hardwired?  If it is over wireless you would have to add the policy in GPO to wait for network before login option to get the mapped drives.  Otherwise hardwire the laptop and do a reboot to get the drives from GPO.  This is an SBS Server so if your looking for map drives to be defined, you would look in the SBS Console

The laptop is on a dock. I see shares in the SBS console, but not mapped drives.

On my phone right now or I'd provide the link, but if you google for group policy preferences and mapped drives you find very quickly how to create the new GP.  If you can't find it, holler and I'll post this afternoon.

Yes, this sounds promising and look relatively easy to create a new GP.  However, please bear in mind that I'm trying to find the existing GP(s), to examine and modify.  Mapped drives are already configured.

Well that's hard to say...by default, out of the box there are no mapped drives that are part of any Group Policy Objects.
Why do you think it's a Group Policy that's doing it and not just manual drive mapping or still being done via a logon script?

I guess I will assume they are manually mapped and will create a new GP, thank you.
