Windows 7: Mapped Drived Fail At Logon/Startup

Windows 7: Mapped Drived Fail At Logon/Startup

I cam across an issue recently where mapped drivers were not connecting at user logon. These drives were attached via the user account in AD (home drive) and via aVBS logon script.

This was resolved by setting the following registry key on the Windows 7 client:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System]
“EnableLinkedConnections”=dword:00000001
