I am struggling with creating a Drive Map Preference. Everything seemed to work fine in the Windows 7 world when I was testing, but in Windows 10 is it not letting me create the Drive Map.

Troubleshooting steps so far:

Fix for Windows Update
In the delegation tab of each gpo make sure that 'authenticated users have read permissions and also that 'domain computers' has read permissions too. this should put the gpo right again.

Applied GPO Always wait for network computer startup and logon
PolicyAlways wait for the network at computer startup and logon
Category PathComputer Configuration\Administrative Templates\System\Logon\

Using gpupdate /force

I can map the drive manually with no problem



I'm just a little stumped as to what the problem could be? Is there a permission setting that GPO uses that the user doesn't use that would cause the GPO drive map to fail?

I ran GPRESULTS /H and RSOP.MSC and noticed that I didn't see the User Preference for Drive Mapping in the RSOP.MSC

I'm thinking it's something stupid that I am missing here...

Apparently if you put a trailing slash in the GPO, it will not map the drive. I was going nutso trying to figure this out.

generally with drive map GPP you face issues if you don't select "Run in logged user security context" checkbox in GPP item properties\common tab

I ended up solving my own problem. I gave an assist though I already had that solution figured out as well.
