    Drive maps not appearing on new builds.

    Hey guys.

    I am a technician working on my own as the NM has left us. I have built a new laptop with XP, It is in the correct OU and should be grabbing the correct GP's.

    However it never seems to be able to grab the correct drive mappings on login regardless of which login I use, I can add them manually on a local admin and Domain admin, but they do not stay put when the main user logs in.

    I have tried resetting the user profile and forcing GPupdate. I have restarted our main file server/GPO area as I had problems with it anyway. I seem to have the same issues with some new Windows 7 PC's that I have deployed to staff but I can manually add the drives and it stays put.

    It appears that any PC's added to the domain with a new name, does not get the correct drive mappings.

    Any ideas?

    Anything in Event Viewer? (the 'Application' log, and check the Group Policy operational log too)

    A lot will depend on how you are mapping the drives. Are you using group policy preferences?
    Have you got the Client Side Extensions installed on the XP laptop?
    When you map the drives manually are you including /PERSISTENT:YES ?

    Do other relevant policies apply to the laptop?
    Have you run gpresult to see what is actually getting applied on the laptop?

    The machine in question doesn't have some kind of card reader, does it? Or lots of USB ports that are trying to map to the same letters as your network drives?
