    In active directory I have set up a home directory letter and path for a user on the profiles tab. For some reason when the user logs on the home directory doesnt automatically map. The user has to manually enter in the information and verify that it is in Explorer. The drive will only stay for the duration of that session. Once the user logs off and logs back on, they have to manually reconnect the home directory again. Any suggestions.

    In AD users and computers is the client section checked when you go into properties of the users > environment?

    The path you are mapping needs to have permissions for the user to have full access to it or it will not map. What does your path look like?

    Sorry it took me so long to update this. My user was connecting remotely. She was not connecting to VPN before logging into the laptop.

    I had the user connect to her ISP, then on her login screen enter user name, password, and select the checkbox next to dial in, then login. her home directory was there. thank you all who help me out.
