RDSH Application - Drive mapping Assistance


We are in the process of evaluating RDSH Application pools in View 7.3.1.  We have been able to successfully publish application and launch them from both View Client and HTML.

What I am looking for assistance is on, when a user launches the application they currently only see the C drive of the server that is hosting the application.

1.  I would like to hide the C drive of the server hosting the RDSH application

2.  Users launching the RDSH applications are not getting assigned their network mapped drives.  We have multiple sites and utilize GPO applied at the site level to apply drive mappings based on the users home office.  Since our View environment is hosted at our HQ office, I would like to provide users with the same set of drive mappings they see for their home office when they login.  I was able to add my network drives to my Horizon Client but I was hoping to do something via GPO applied to the OU I have my RDSH servers sitting in.

Any guidance is greatly appreciated.

Have you tried logging straight into the RD server as one of the users and running GPResult /r /v to ensure the drive mapping polices are being applied to the users on the RD VM's?

1.) In group policy you can hide the drives under:

          User Configuration | Policies | Administrative Templates |  Windows Components | File Explorer

                    Hide these specified drives in My Computer = enabled, Restrict A, B, C, and D drives only

2.) You will want to use Group Policy loop-back in merge mode. This will allow you to link GPOs with user configurations to the RDSH OU and have those applied for users that connect to the server.
