Attempting to migrate from Login Scripts to GPO for mapped drives.  
Created the mapped drives in GPO.  
They're showing up with a red x and say NTFS.
When double clicking on them, they open fine.  
Problem is, we have apps that connect back to those drives and if they're in "disconnect" mode, Apps fail.  
Once you double click on it and then go into the App, works fine.  Not the process, obviously.

I've done the following steps.  
Registry Keys - Enable Linked Connections, SyncForegroundPolicy, GpNetworkStartTimeoutPolicyValue and DisableDHCPMediaSense.

The mapped drive is as follows:

Create
\\Servername\Shared
reconnect, label as Shared (\\Servername}
Drive Letter Use: S
Show this drive/show all drives

Domain is a 2008 R2 with 2 local DCs running dhcp and dns.
Client in Question is both Windows 7 and when in Citrix (xenapp 6.5 farm)  

At this point, i'm scratching my head.  
thanks!
