  • can I use %logonserver% in UNC?

    Hi,
    I have a GPO (Enterprise Mode for IE11) that uses pointing to xml file. So, in GPO settings I have to provide the path to XML.
    it works fine with UNC path. The file placed on one of DCs
    \\server_name\sysvol\sysvol\domain\scripts

    The question: can I replace server_name to %logonserver%?
    Thanks.

    You may be able to try that environment variable, but the better solution would be to use your domain name instead of the server name (\\my_domain\sysvol...\). That way, whichever DC answers, assuming you have no faults with DC replication, the sysvol share will be the same.

      Thanks for suggesting the right alternative... will try it Monday...
      I think there should be an option "Mark as an answer" on the Petri Forums like MS.
      May the owner has a reason why it is not here... But definitely I would like to mark right and good suggestions...

        Let's hope my 'idea' actually does the trick.
