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.

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

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