Home Directory Mapping to Share\UserName sometimes maps to Share

    Users receive a mapped drive via their AD Profile Home Directory path. This
    path is set to \\ServerName\Home\UserName. At random times, with no
    identified common factor, users receive a mapping to \\ServerName\Home
    directly instead of to their Home Directory. Logout/login and it may go back
    to the full mapping or it may not. This has happened to both regular
    non-privileged users, users with local PC admin. privileges and network

    Anyone seen this before, and if so, do a resolution?

    We have a Windows 2003 SP1 R2 Active Directory Native Mode (2003 functional
    mode.) We have ABE (Access Based Enumeration) turned on to hide the other
    user's folders. The share has Everyone Full Control on it. The shared
    folder has Authenticated Users / List Folder Special Permission (This Folder
    Only) and the user has Modify permission on their Home Directory.

  2. XP clients?
    Turn on the "always wait for network at startup and logon" setting in GP and
    this should go away. It's always fixed it for me.

    I thought we have that set. I forget now if we are seeing this only on XP or
    not. I'll check. Thanks.
