Map drive for all users

March 4, 2009 at 12:53:27
Specs: Windows Vista
I have a 2008 server and a program on it that requires the remote user to have a specific mapped drive. For example if i rdp into the 2008 server as administrator I have a mapped drive of O which is really just a shortcut to a folder sitting local on the server. If another user rdps into the same server the mapped drive is not there and the program will not work unless I log into the server with that users info and manually map the drive. Is there a way to make everyone that rdps into the server to automatically have that mapped drive?

Pretty sure you could make a mapped icon in all users desktop. Might be wrong. Pretty sure there is a net use command to make that work or group policy or even mstsc setting.

"Best Practices", Event viewer, host file, perfmon, antivirus, anti-spyware, Live CD's, backups, are in my top 10

I take it you didn't setup this server and program?

Perhaps you can get help from who set this server up?

You map user drives via their logon script.

You mention RDP and then say "users" like more then two. Unless you have terminal services configured and licensed you will only get a max of two RDP sessions.

A one sentence question will result in a one sentence answer.
