GPO drive mappings Windows 10 show up disconnected but its really connected

Hey guys,

we are having issues with our mapped drives GPO. We have a drive called the M and N drive that are constantly giving us issues in windows 10 and 8. When the user signs in the M drive will automatically say its disconnected  but the N drive will work correctly. Both are set using the "Create" option in Group policy. When we switch the option from Create to Update , all craziness happens and even more issues will happen from the N and M drive such as it disappears and/or doesnt connect and gives us errors. So...  I ran this GPResults from the command line on a test computer and noticed that both drives show up TWICE in the gpresults . I am thinking maybe it has something to do with the drives acting weird?

I also cannot figure out why its showing twice because the GPO drive mappings are only linked to "one" OU.

Any help would be greatly appreciated... ( by the way ive had this problem for about 6 months now and have run out of ideas).

Weird indeed.
I would unlink the drive mapping GPOs and start with a new one, after making sure that no drive is connected in between.

Hi, can the issue be reproducted everytime ? What kind of network drives are behind ? Some Filer like Netapp or similiar ? In this case maybe try some native share on a "real" windows server ? what about the gpo's. do you use loopback mode ?

Hi loopback processing isnt enabled where the GPO drives are at. Yes the issue can be reproduced everytime.

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

You know that following my suggestion would have led to the solution. Seems funny to just close this.
