Drive Mapping via MS Domain...

I just installed windows 7 on my laptop and attached it to the domain. I then rebooted and logged in to the domain but unable to see all my drive mappings that I see on my XP or Vista systems. I am able to hard map my drives. Can anyone help?

Thanks,
Mark

Have you manually mapped them the first time and selected to reconnect at logon?

I am still looking for a proper answer to this as well which the question was posted with more details

also manually mapping drives does not solve the problem when using a domain login using group policies (GPO)

further to the problem are not only the login scripts for the mapped drives, but the rest of the group policies seems to fail as well, such as folder redirect and mapped printer resources.

Please any system engineers who knows the proper fix (besides the regedit which does not work either) please help.

thx

Please start your own thread corresponding to your own issue(s). There's no reason to believe that the root causes of any symptoms you may be observing are identical to the OPs.

As a suggestion, it would also be useful for you to include more detail regarding the precise nature of the symptoms, plus the advice given to you by your domain/system admins - assuming that's not you.
