After the update to Vista/Windows 7, mapping of the UserHome drive fails silently at logon. All other drive mappings made by a logon script are successful. This happens always if the UserHome is mapped through the AD user-object. UserHome mapping configured by GPO is not affected. There are no error messages logged and it is hard to find a reason for this behavior 🙁

Disabling UAC helps, but should not be the final solution, since it opens up many security holes.

Not really a Citrix problem but annoying if you happen to stumble upon it. Since it took me some time to find a solution, i thought it might be a good idea to post it here.

The following registry key allows again for a successful UserHome mapping:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
