So I seem to be having an issue with mapping drives with windows 10 pro x64.

I echo'd out errors to see what was happening, and it would say the drive is already mapped, even after rebooting with only C mapped. So I unmapped all drives prior to the mapping script and it would still not map drives, or throw any errors, just return 0.

I can manually map the drives, and access the shares. It's also only occasionally not working, which makes it the most difficult to troubleshoot. Everything else in KIX completes fine. I have other Windows 10 x64 PC's that map no problem, always.

UPDATED:

Well, I found the fix, my kix32.exe file was set as run as administrator under compatibility mode. I unchecked that, and everything worked as it should!

Have you actually checked that the computer doesn't think the drives are really being used? Maybe run something like this in your script to get a log of what drives it thinks are mapped.
 Code:
shell '%comspec% /c net use > c:\drives.txt'

Or maybe try unmapping all drives right before mapping.
 Code:
USE * /DELETE

When I mentioned that I unmapped all the drives, I had this above the mapping portion:

USE * /DELETE

Logon script or Startup Script.

It is a log on script. I can also run it after the log in of course.

My login script provides a ton of diagnostic info. If you're willing to download and add it to your Netlogon share, it should provide enough info about the environment to possibly identify the problem without modifying your current script. See the link in my sig and browse to Products / Administrators Toolchest.

PM me with the following info and I'll create a basic config file for you to eliminate the learning curve and provide you with a 30-day demo license key (if needed):
# of domain controllers in your environment (4 or less requires no license).
List of resources to map - drive, UNC Path, Group(s) to control mapping (if any)
Do you want to unmap drives prior to mapping?
Any drives to exclude from the unmapping process?

If you can reproduce this with a specific user, update that user's profile to run the new script. Create a debug file in their user profile folder and debugging will be enabled automatically.

The debug file will identify the system environment, all groups the user is a member of, the OU that the user and computer are in, and much more. Then, for each resource being mapped the status of the authorization logic (group, site, OU, etc. memberships) and result of the mapping command will be logged. If it fails to map, this should point to the cause.

Welcome to KORG, BTW!

Regards,

Glenn

BTW - a client in Australia had an issue with no mapping on 3 of 200+ machines - by running this we were able to determine that the environment was corrupt during logon due to a system fault.

As an example, I imaged a PC with fresh windows 10, logged in as myself, as a domain admin, and it could not map them, although it completed. But on my other Win 10 PC, worked/mapped fine.

Error 85 "the local device name is already in use"

Then I add USE * /DEL and I get a return of 0 "The operation completed successfully"

but still no mapped drive. I will PM you Glenn.

It clearly mapped them but in different context.

We had similar issues with vista and admin security tokens. I bet this is something similar.

Yeah... I was thinking along the lines of a startup script mapping them as system prior to the logon script doing it.

I don't know if 10 has app isolation. If it does that could explain it. Other than that, I still vote for security context.

I've got at least 100 Windows 10 pcs running various logon scripts, with no mapping issues. With and without UAC on.

Both.

No Reghack.

All mapping is done in the logonscript. The only time I ever heard/experienced the issues you are talking about was when mapping was in the startup script.

I've had no issues with W-10 and my login script. It runs for all users, including admins, with unique mappings for regular vs. admin users. (Admins usually get some extra shares for app installs and the MSDN ISO library.) We avoid granting local admin rights to user's primary accounts as a rule. In my environment, UAC is on, but for admin logins it elevates silently. No "reg-hacks" anywhere.

The script is in service at some clients with thousands of users and I've also had no feedback about missing mappings or similar issues, except for the large law firm in Australia - which turned out to be 3 corrupt system images.

Now that does not make any sense. If someone tries to map a drive for a user in startup script, it's a matter of stupidity vs knowledge.

I have seen the token issue in several places. But since I hate metro and ads, I have no idea would that still pertain to win8, win8.1 or win8.10

What comes to the current persons issue, if it works except on this computer, something clearly isn't normal/right with this system and re-image probably is the best solution.

What is the token issue?

We have nothing else mapping, we have used kixtart for mapping for the last 7-8 years.
