Windows Event Logs : Warning

Hi Experts

In my domain controller, under event viewer, Windows Logs / Application, I am getting this "warning"

The user 'H:' preference item in the 'Map Drives {A9129188-9898-4D1A-9898-D09FC939D04F}' Group Policy Object did not apply because it failed with error code '0x80070035 The network path was not found.' This error was suppressed.

There is a group policy for drive mappings.

Appreciate any advise

Not much to go on there, but it could be a folder that changed drive letters or a persistent drive that changed letters and is now mapping somewhere else.

Does the error say what workstation originated the error?

Please look at:

http://anonit.blogspot.ca/2013/11/group-policy-preferences-drive-mapping.html

It says part way down the mapping failed because there was a trailing backslash and should not have been.

See if that helps.

Hi KCTS

Following the article you shared, I used net use to get to the drive, but has error

It asks for Username and Password and then Error 53.  Network path was not found

On checking using Run, it does not resolve to the folder as well...but using a totally different path I can get to the share drive

\\172.168.2.1\e$\Shares\User Drives

Should I change the location to the path that resolves?
Thanks
