Please help, I dont know why our GPO shows twice for our mapped drives and its causing some issues.
Both of the "Edmonton M Drive" and "Nuna Company N Drive" shows twice and NO loop back processing isnt enabled. This happens on both windows 8 and windows 10 machines.

Please see attached picture which outlines my frustrating issue.

Is the GPO linked to two different OUs in the tree the user object is in? If you have the GPO linked to the Root domain and an OU, then all objects in that OU will apply the GPO twice. That's the first thing I can think of that would cause this.

OMG , i just figured it out and thank you so much! it was linked twice but mainly under "Sites". under group policy managed for the GPO selected i had to change from all sites to "entire forest" and there i saw it was linked to another site (which was the same one again)...

Thanks so much guys
