I've got a few GPs for putting Network Shares on Win7 Desktops and Favorites. It works amazing well; however, I found an instance on Friday where it needs some tweaking.
The Network Shares are coming off a Meta-Data Controller that has two Nodes for fail-over. This is great because the system keeps chugging away if one Node hiccups or fails completely. The issue though is that the average user doesn't realize that there are two Nodes, what a Node even is, and how to access the shares from the other Node's IP address (or what an IP address is...). On Friday Node A must have went down momentarily and then Node B became the primary Node. This caused all of the Shares to then be hosted by xxx.xxx.xxx.9 whereas everyone's GP setting for the Desktop and Favorites Shortcuts is xxx.xxx.xxx.8.
Is there a way in GP to set up the Shortcuts to use an IP range rather than just the static IP address for Node A? That way if Node B because the primary everyone's not freaked out that they've "lost everything!!!"?
