Call today: User has not got any network drives when logging on to the thin clients.
The setup for this is as follows:
- 2 x Windows Server 2008 R2 servers running RDS, DNS round robin, load balanced.
- 56 x ThinStation 2.2.2 clients
A VBS login script is applied using Group Policy. All student users have a Mandatory Roaming Profile.
Any user that was not the user that I used to create the template could not run the login script. Took quite a while to work out that the mandatory profile was the cause.
To solve the problem:
- Open Registry Editor
- Select HKEY_USERS, then click File –> Load Hive
- Select the mandatory profile file (NTUSER.MAN) and give it a name.
- Right click on the key that you typed in in step 3 and select Permissions.
- Remove the user that you used to create the Mandatory Profile
- Add in the Authenticated Users (or a different group if you want to restrict access further) and assign it Full Control.
- Propagate the permissions to all child objects.
- Select the hive that you added in step 3, click File –> Unload Hive
I suggest creating a backup of the original hive before you make any changes. Just in case.
Now, whenever a user logs in the script should run, and create all of the necessary network drives that you have defined in your script.
