    XP and Server 2003 Drive maps

    Morning all,

    Ever since rolling out Windows Server 2012 R2 as a DC on our Domain some of our XP and Server 2003 clients (Physical and virtual) are not displaying drive maps! We are now completely over to GPP and disabled all scripts pertaining to drive maps. In GPP we have all drive maps set to create. Any ideas anybody?

    Have you installed the GPP extensions for XP and 2003 on those clients?

    Set the action when creating a drive map to 'replace' than 'create' or 'update'.

    I haven't installed the extensions no. I always used scripts but now we are over to Windows Server 2012 R2 I have moved over to GPP exclusively as Windows 8.1 clients were not showing drive maps. Now, since then we are beginning to experience the odd windows XP client and Server 2003 client not mapping the drives. This has not been immediate but a gradual thing. I have tried changing the GPP prefs to replace and this does not seem to have fixed it even after a GPUPDATE/FORCE and reboot. So I expect it's the extensions we need to install then. I have never looked at this so can somebody point me in the right direction? Does it require a login script or something on these clients?

    We intend discontinuing the use of Windows XP within a month so it shouldn't be an issue but I have a couple of Windows Server 2003 client still and it would be nice to get it sorted for those. Appreciate the help guys thanks
