Hello Everyone,

we are having issues when trying to save a group policy which was working perfectly fine until recently. the error message is "The scripts component is unable to save the changes due to error 32". I looked in the vent log on the DC but found nothing. What this cause is any new locations or modifications to existing mapped drives does not take effect. When we check the computers they receive the GPO using gpresult /r however the new changes does not take effect.

Below are the what I have done;

Confirmed the unc paths are accessible
confirmed I am able to edit the batch file in the save location

What happens if you create a new GPO and specify the MappedNetworkDrive.bat logon script inside that new GPO?

Have you confirmed the script is working if you run it manually?

Hi Roshan,
I manually ran the script but nothing happens. There is no error in GPO or windows event log on machine.

That would indicate an issue with the script itself rather than Group Policy.

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Issue resolved, turns out that there was no Go to the end at the end of each location which made the script failed. I still get that 32 error but folders are mapped.

That's good.... had a feeling it was the script itself.
