My apologies if this post exists elsewhere, I did a search a could not find an answer.
I'm running kixstart in a AD structure.
Group names are not being resolved.
For example, look at this cmd
use i: /DELETE /PERSISTENT
use i: "\\server\I"
Everything was working fine until I did a server migration this weekend. Part of that process included renaming the group from its old name to its present keng_I_drive. (I change the pre-2000 name to the same thing as well).
Now the I: is not being mapped. What's even more odd is, is that if I replace keng_I_drive w/ the old group name in the script, it DOES map... even though I renamed the group in ADUC!
Very very odd.
Furthermore, I created a new group this past weekend and it does not execute its drive mapping either. It is parsing the logon.kix file properly (I tested that in debug), but when it gets to the new group section, it just skips over it as if it does not exist. The new group does exist and I can resolve it (for instance, I can do a 'check name' on a folder in Windows for it and it does come up). (Both groups are global/security groups).
I don't understand:
1) how kix recognizes an OLD existing group name even tho I renamed it
2) how to get kix to recognize a newly created group even tho AD see its fine.
Again, my apologies if this is a repost. Any help would be appreciated.
