i have a problem with a mapped dirve problem.
at work there is a mapped drive called G:Apps and its permissions are set to 'everyone' read, write , execute.
Thing is on the localmachine when a user logs in i keep getting the error message
"Unable to re-connect a network drive"
but if i change the useres group on the local machine to 'Administrators' the mapped drive works fine, its only when they are set as 'users'
can anone help me as i dont really want to leave the users as administrators'
This is where it gets interesting, in winXP the restricted users group is called "users", but in active directory on the server there is a user group called "users" which contains everybody including the administrator. but on the server the specified drive has full access to everybody - all users. but when i chnage the user goup i manually map the network driveto that user and log off.
then when the user logs in the drive is not there and the error message is dispayed.
Can anyone help?
