    Weird issue - home drives not mapping

    I'm having some problems with users this morning mapping home areas, were using 2008 R2 with XP clients, the issue is :

    In AD the home folder is set to connect to U: \\sjdc2\staff$\%username%

    This was working last week and yesterday, since then no changes have been made

    Users have correct permissions to their home folder (ad set them up when i created them)

    Users can browse to the correct folder the explorer or run

    My VBS script disconnects all mapped drives before mapping network drives everytime at first logon

    however,

    When a user logs in all they get is the root of \\sjdc2\staff$\ mapped to U:

    Really baffled on this one, why has windows decided not to play ball with home user drive map? Everything i can think of is set correctly - can anyone help??

    What are the permission on the folder Staff$, I know you said you can browse it but I've found sometimes you need the user SYSTEM as a full control user for that folder as well before it will map.

    needs to be disabled
