Configuring mapped drives through User Group Policy
We are in the process of moving our SIMS server from server A to server B. We will need to change the drive mappings for our 'M' drive to reflect the change so users pickup the new server. Have made the relevant change in this 'Drive Maps' area here.
All seems ok but the drive is still being mapped to the old location even after several reboots. NM who usually deals with this is away. Is there anything obvious that I may have missed? Ie does it need to be set elsewhere?

You have the action to create, but i'm pretty sure it won't create it if it already exists, try changing it to update

It might be worth deleting the user profiles off the PC if your using them.

as stated above by @Firefox - try update instead of create.

What they all said, you need to set it to 'Replace' if it exists already; taken from the help file of GPO,
Create a new mapped drive for users.
Remove a mapped drive for users.
Delete and recreate mapped drives for users. The net result of the Replace action is to overwrite all existing settings associated with the mapped drive. If the drive mapping does not exist, then the Replace action creates a new drive mapping.
Modify settings of an existing mapped drive for users. This action differs from Replace in that it only updates settings defined within the preference item. All other settings remain as configured on the mapped drive. If the drive mapping does not exist, then the Update action creates a new drive mapping.
