Mapped Drives not updating
We have put in a new SIMs server and I now need to change the mapped drive to change to the new share path.
I have changed this in group policy, however its not updating the drive in question.
USER CONFIGURATION > PREFERENCES > WINDOWS SETTINGS > DRIVE MAPS
I have tried create, update and replace and none seem to be applying to the users roaming profile. If you logon as the user and disconnect the old drive and remap using the same drive letter to the new path it works fine and stays on the users account.
Any ideas how I can force an update on this drive path through group policy?
I tried making a new GPO with mapped drives but that's having no effect either unless you give the user a new roaming profile.

- Rep Power
To modify an existing drive mapping (identified by drive letter), select Existing, and then select a drive letter. This option is available only if the Location field is blank, and the action selected is Update.

I always map drives with "Replace" as the Action.
Also make sure in "Common" tab for each drive map that the "Apply once and do not reapply" is UNticked.

Neither of these seem to be working on a lot of accounts. It applied to some but not others. I have a few more to change soon.
Is there a logon script i can use to force the mapped drives onto the users too just incase as i have had to change quite a few manually and save back to their roaming profile.
