I created several non-admin accounts for other staff, I tested with these accounts and they do default to profilesusers so the mapped drive GPO works Q: what is causing my brian admin acct to use users and not the GPO profiles%username% mapping? They both use the H: drive Thanks B. Author Posts Viewing 1 post (of 1 total) You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
