We have a GPO that maps drives through User Preferences.
It works.
That is it's working as long as the shares are located on a Windows Server fileserver.
When we try to add a drive map to a fileshare that's on a workstation,
that one added map isn't showing up on the network Windows 10 Pro computers.
The modified GPO *is*.
I don't find anything that suggests it wouldn't work:
The map is to \\computername\sharename
where computername is a member of a domain OU.

(One can successfully manually add the same drive map on a workstation).
