I'm needing some help with Group policy.

I have an OU named "Terminal server" in AD that holds all the users that work on a server. I have created a new network share for just Customer Service and I want to map this drive to them automatically, however they are within the "Terminal Server" OU and I don't want everyone in there to get that drive map. I've created a Global Security group with the select users part of it. I then created a Sub OU Called "CS" within the "Terminal server" OU, dropped this group into here and created a Group policy to map the drive and then linked this policy to the "CS" OU. I forced a GP update on some of the users within the group and the drives mapped but for some users and others it didn't which I find very strange, I did this locally on their machine. On the server it hasn't mapped at all.

Sorry if it's wordy and if you need more information I can provide it.

Attached the settings of the GP drive map

How did you map the network share?

How did you do the "force"?

Compare the configuration and policy settings of a "successful" end user to an "unsuccessful" end user in the CS OU.

Hi Ralston

The users are within a group so I can't compare the configuration of different users as it should be applying to them all equally if you get me?

To do the force I went to the users machine that was already logged in and went to cmd and entered the command: gpupdate /force
