Shre link via GPO

Hi Experts,

I have a share on my netapp and I want to create a GPO and link it to several people in the domain.
Can you show me how ?
Because I always get an error 0x80070002

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The link should be on the desktop of users

The 0x80070002 error means "The system cannot find the file specified."

So I assume there is a problem with how you've presented the share.

So start from the beginning:
1: Create a security Group for the users you want to have the share
Edit the GPO
Go to User Configuration > Preferences > Windows Settings > Shortcuts
Right Click > New Shortcut - with these settings
General Tab:
Action: Update
Name: <Name that will appear on Desktop>
Target Type: File System Object
Location:  Desktop
Target Path : <Path to share i.e. "\\ServerName\ShareName">
Leave all the rest of the settings (Unless you want to choose a specific icon)
Common Tab:
Run in logged-on users security context - Ticked
Item Level Targeting - Ticked
Click the targeting button >  New Item > Security Group > In the lower window the User radio button must be checked > Cick the browse button (...) and select the new security group.

Add the users that require the share to the security group and link the GPO to the required USERs OU.

And that should do it....
