    Joining Acer Iconia to AD

    Am trying to join just 2 Acer Iconia tablets to Active Directory. I can see the tablets within AD but the Acer's are not picking up the network drives.
    What am I missing? Is there a quick fix out there?

    There's a 1 in 3 chance it's a Windows variant. [Based on model name.]


    Are the tablets in the correct OU?
    Is the GPO applying properly?

    Have you tried "gpupdate /force"? [without quotes]

    Can you map to the drives manually?

    Either with right click Computer, Map network drive or Start, Run, \\server\share.
    Might be best to try both in case you're actually picking up a GPO which hides all drives

    Cheers,
    Gerard

    If it's the W510 it comes with Home Premium as standard. You'll need to upgrade to Professional or Enterprise to join the domain, although you should be able to map the network drives.

    That was my thinking but he said he can see them in AD.

    Makes sense, being in the Win 8 forum [DERP].

    How are your drives mapped? Logon Script? GPP?

    As x-13 said, are they in the correct OU? Try running rsop and see what it says?
