    GPO setting to wait for drives to be mapped?

    I have a primary school where they have certain drives mapped on a log on script for the users and this works fine. Also the users have H:as their home directory in 'user properties' and this maps the H: drive. The problem i am having in school is that on random times during the day the H:drive does not map. I have no idea why this happens and my only conclusion is traffic generated when pupils log in on the hour every hour.

    I seem to remember there is a setting in GPO that you can turn on that tells it to wait for drives to be mapped(or similar). Does anyone know of this? Or do you know of anything else that could be causing this?

    The server that holds the Home Directories is only around 6 months old.

    You maybe thinking of the "Wait for the network" or similarly labeled setting although its relevance to this kind of scenario I am unsure.....

    You need to set the 'run logon scripts synchronously' policy.

    Any idea where that is off the top of your head?

    Search for the group policy setting spreadsheet on the microsoft website it will show you.
