  • Converting to Group Policy

    Anybody want to give me a step by step process to convert to GPO from using a logon script with AD to map some network drives? We are having issues mapping all network drives and I think that using group policy will do a better job of mapping them automatically to our users.

    By the way, here is the script currently.

    net use K: /delete
    net use F: /delete
    net use G: /delete

    rem \\WSBSRV1a\OFCSCAN\AUTOPCC

    net use K: "\\wsbsrv1a\shared folders\installs_a" /y
    net use F: "\\wsbsrv1a\shared folders\iti_a" /y
    net use G: "\\wsbsrv1a\shared folders\wsbfiles_a" /y

    net time \\wsbsrv1a /set /y

      You can use Group Policy Preferences to map the drives -- there is an option to update previous mappings so the delete and net use will be replaced

      Net Time is not relevant in a domain -- all computers should get their time automatically from the PDC emulator FSMO

        To add to Tom's post, I would note that if you're running Windows XP and Windows 2003, you'll need to make sure the Group Policy Preference Client Side Extensions update is installed before you can use group policy preferences on those machines.
