AD login script drive mappings overwriting Citrix application drive mappings

0 pts.

Here is my scenario: Have an Citrix application that uses the same drive letter that is used by the AD login script. I use groups in the AD login script to map the drive. As long as my user in not in the group, the Citrix application maps the drive and the application runs as it should. I have added a "net use R: /d" statement to the part of the script that runs the application but it still seems that as long as the user is a member of the AD group, the application is seeing the AD mapped drive. What do I need to change? thank you.

echarlie,
try altering your [net use r: /d] to [net use r: /d /y] this way you effectively force the connection to r: to close. It is possible the there are files being used on the mapped r: at the time you are trying to remove the mapping, this will stop the removal of the mapping. Doing it this way it will remove the mapping regardless of any open files, but that in itself opens another problem!!

    Is the login script attached to the user profile, or are you mapping drives with a login script via a group policy object? If through a GPO, is it through the user or computer side? If computer, I would say that's the problem.

    I am trying the "/y" switch to the net use command in the application.cmd file. As for the question about where the script is attached to, i believe it is the GPO. (we were a netware shop up until 2 months ago when in a frenzy we converted all our serves (200) to AD so now we're dealing with all the 'unforeseen' issues and of course i had to learn/ing this stuff on the fly.) Still it seems like the AD script is running after the usrlogn1.cmd and the application.cmd called from within the usrlogn1.cmd. And what I want to happen is for the application.cmd to be the last thing to run. thanks all!!!
