Group policy drive map by group Membership

Group policy drive map by group Membership

We have different sites  in our company  but they are in the same ACtive Directory domain.


each site has drive maps  A.....Z

sometimes a user in siteA has  drive map A ,B,C , those drives map  to folders in FileServerXX , but he needs also to be mapped to SiteB drives A,B,C but those are mapped to folders in FileServerZZ
I wonder if there is a way for that user in siteA to have folders from driveA on FileServerZZ to be displayed  on his mapped driveA onSiteA with the folders he has from FileServeXX.

 I mean he will be able to see folders on his mapped drive A from both FileServerXX and FileServerZZ

you cannot have map drive with same drive letter multiple times

U can create as many map drive until drive letter ends with multiple servers but they would like d E F G H and so on.

U can create drive map group policy preference item and provide time based mapping so that say morning 8 to 5 map drive D with file server AA and afterword's it could file server BB but not both at a time with same drive letter

Curious why you need the same mappings?
Shaun VermaakTechnical SpecialistCommented:
No, but you can make drive mappings site aware by either linking them to the site in GPMC or applying an item level filter to a Group Policy drive mapping preference.

So you could for example:

When connected to SiteA
A, B and C to FileServerXX
D, E and F to FileServerYY

When connected to SiteB
A, B and C to FileServerYY
D, E and F to FileServerXX

or any combination

CEOs need to know what they should worry about

Nearly every week during the past few years has featured a headline about the latest data breach, malware attack, ransomware demand, or unrecoverable corporate data loss. Those stories are frequently followed by news that the CEOs at those companies were forced to resign.
