How to Fix Local Resources not Mapping with RDP session Windows 2008

Recently ran into an issue where several servers would not honor the local resources map when running a Remote Desktop Session to a Windows 2008 R2 server. Since this was not controlled by Group Policy I was able to fix the issue. Below are the steps used to correct it.

(read: a check in this box means drive & printer mapping is DISABLED)
Windows 2008: Click Start, Administrative Tools, Terminal Services, Terminal Services Configuration. On the left pane, select RD Session Host Configuration and then right-click RDP-Tcp within the Connections section of the right-hand pane, then select Properties. In the window that pops up, click the Client Settings tab and make sure that the box next to Drive & Printer is UNCHECKED.

Windows 2008 R2: Click Start, Administrative Tools, Remote Desktop Services, Remote Desktop Host Configuration. On the left pane, select RD Session Host Configuration and then right-click RDP-Tcp within the Connections section of the right-hand pane, then select Properties. In the window that pops up, click the Client Settings tab and make sure that the box next to Drive & Printer is UNCHECKED.

Windows 2003 R2: Click Start, Administrative Tools, Terminal Services Configuration. Select the Connections folder and right-click RDP-Tcp and select Properties. In the window that pops up, click the Client Settings tab and make sure that the box next to Drive & Printer Mapping is UNCHECKED.

 

And that is all there is to it!
