Not too too familiar with GPOs so thought I will post this question here. I am doing a project tomorrow and will be changing the file server and therefore end up needing to tweak group policies to automate Mapped drive changes for about 100 users.
All machines in the office are mix of :
Windows 10 Pro
I looked at Group Policies and looks like the Drive maps are currently set to :
Whats the easiest and proper way to attain this change to \\newserver\public\sharedfolder ?
I did some googling but did not find a consistent answer. Some people say use replace and some say just update and change path. As per TechNet: Update Modify settings of an existing mapped drive for users. This action differs from Replace in that it only updates settings defined within the preference item. All other settings remain as configured on the mapped drive. If the drive mapping does not exist, then the Update action creates a new drive mapping.
What settings ?? Does the drive Map path not considered part of this so called "setting" ?
Should I leave Action as UPDATE and simply change location to the new path and hope it will work ?
Or Should I use Replace option ? I do not want to complicate this work just want to find the solution that should work in this scenario. I am hoping simply leaving it UPDATE and changing the location path should work. Isnt it ?
