How to map a shared drive for 2 users

Hi

We are using Windows 2012 Domain controller Windows 10 workstations.

I have 2 users and when they log into the Windows 10 PCs,  I would like a shared drive mapped on any PC they log into the network.
The shared derive is located on the windows 2102 server.

Please let me know the best way of doing this and any tutorials will be great.

Thanks

Either group policy, or on their user object in AD set it to map the drive as theirs home drive if you asa not already using that to map another drive?



or via GPO

On the user properties H drive is already set up as home drive and path for their home drives has been setup.
This drive is a shared drive for 2 users.

Is it possible to set up map a shared drive via   GPO only for 2 users?

Yes of course, put those two users in a group, and only grant that group the 'read rights' on the policy.
