2012 R2 server GPO drive mappings show red X

2012 R2 server GPO drive mappings show red X, though once clicked access is available.
Have found a post, specifying to set Default domain policy with drive mappings, but we have different groups that map to different locations.
We'll most likely be adding other GPO's per group/companies to map their specific locations based on permissions. Is there a way to make the drive not show this red X?  Found where AutoCAD will not show previous drawing links, on initial screen at startup.

Give a try with edit UNC path in GPO as IP instead of servername..
Ex: if UNc path is like //server/AutoCad change it //192.168.../Autocad

how do you map your drive?

With logon script or GPO Preferences?

Have the user permissions to access to the share ?

Benjamin - we use GPO. You actually helped with the mapping question last time.

If I understand you correctly, there is a group of people who have mapped a network drive and they have a red X when the drive is mapped?
Benjamin VoglarIT ProCommented:
I guess you use GPO preferences. In the action try to change setting from create to update or to replace.

If there is still red X. Use a logon script and use this script:

net use [drive]: /delete
net use [drive]: \\server\share

You can map drive using Item Level Targeting, details around the same are mentioned in the article.

Set another MapDrive in the same GPO for troubleshooting, if it works fine so select update/replace in action for that faulty MapDrive as Benjamin Voglar ask you to do.

I read about LDAP setting and changed this to None, which resolved the problem, so far.
