There's something wrong with those mappings. \\TSClient is the local session host.

UNC should be \\ServerName\HomeFolder or something like that. Group Policy Preferences can be used to set mapped drives along with Active Directory Users and Computers

OK Tks.
How to achieve this in this context of RemoteApp. I'm quite OK with GPO's but not with GPO"s with Remote App. Could you give me a hint?

RemoteApp is no different than a desktop session host or sitting at one's desk. The user should receive the same Group Policy settings that are defined against their resident OU if that's how things are set up there.

We assign users their mapped drives via Group Policy Preferences with the GPO linked and enforced against the OU they are resident in.

For RD Session Host and dedicated RemoteApp servers Loopback can be used to customize permissions for users logging in to those machines. Be careful with this one.

Hello again,
How to avoid to present \\TSClient mapping with RDP ?

Disable drive redirection for incoming RDP connections and make sure the user's mapped drives are done in Group Policy Preferences.

That's the first part. Check the mapping in Group Policy Preferences.
