Not getting Mapped network drives on windows 7
we have mainly windows server 2008 r2 edition installed with home drives from the active directory user properties and all other mapped drives from script.
on a windows xp machine the user gets all the mapped drives via script and the home drive
on a windows 7 machine which is in same OU as the xp machines.
When i log in as a administrator i only get the home drive and NOT the mapped drives via script
If i log in as a teacher i get the mapped drives no NOT the home drive
any ideas why?

what happens if you run the script manually?
1 possible is that the drives are in the xp profile(s) and the script is duff in some way. or there is a hide drives policy active on 7

If i run script manually it works fine, all drives appear, but users wouldn't like to do this everyday sadly. if it runs manually an runs OK does that rule out above possibilities?

probably. can you make the script visible on login and remove any @echo off etc so you can see what its doing maybe make a copy and put a pause at the end

What kind of script, VB or batch?

or kixart? VBS is the most robust throughout the versions, all the others fade in and out with support.

Try adding this right before the lines that map the drives:
It's goofy, but I've seen it where if enough is going on in the background and the drives are mapped too quickly some of them will be ignored. Maybe a timeout or something...
