Do you have it so that it's item level targeted and then using the security group determining it's access?
(click on Common tab at the Drive Mapping window) Choose item level targeting, then select targeting.  Then choose the security group option under New Item.  Then choose your test group security group.  Apply the changes.



i'm away from home right now, but if I recall correctly, I did set it up with my test gpo (called "Test GPO", BTW)

127  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Server/GPO Question/Help on: January 13, 2014, 07:01:06 PM
So... I am using Oracle VirtualBox to setup a test lab for some refresher work. Currently running 1 Windows Server 2012 and 1 Win 7 Workstation in VirtualBox.
I have been doing IT type stuff for years and years, but have fell behind in the server stuff since my last position didn't really use it, so I setup this test lab last week to get back into the stuff.
I have the server setup as a DC and it has 2 virtual NIC's. (1 out to my regular network/Internet (Also setup for Internet connection sharing), 1 setup for local only to the workstation)
Workstation has 1 NIC to the local only network.
I setup a test user with a test group and a test GPO.
GPO adds a printer, some restrictions on Control panel and 1 mapped drive pointing to a local folder on the server
Workstation connects to the server/domain with no problem. It also accepts the GPO somewhat, in that the printer and restrictions hit the Workstation. It also hits the Internet...usually..
Problem is that the mapped drive won't show up. If I manually map the drive from the workstation it works, so it shouldn't be a permission issue. I have also tried disabling the firewall and using gpudate /force and rebooting.
Workstation is fully updated as well.
Tried Googling it, but solutions I found didn't apply.
Anyone with experience on this have an idea?

I have also noticed Amazon has started using USPS more lately, which certainly is a concern for me.  I hate to bad mouth the USPS, but I have had some absolutely horrible service from them in the past at my current address.  Getting other neighbors' mail regularly, getting my own mail lost, late deliveries, ignored posts to leave packages,
This has happened by me recently. more USPS deliveries than normal. some minor issues/delays, but I have had only one major issue so far though.. Had a package listed as undeliverable for a non-existent address and was being returned to sender. Had to shoot an email off to USPS and was pleasantly surprised when I received a reply the same day! Seems that they loaded the package onto the wrong postman's truck and since he didn't recognize the address, he marked it as wrong. The person who replied had it fixed and delivered the next day. I was really worried at first, thinking that by the time I had a reply, it would have already been sent back, but it worked out!

I may have covered this before on here somewhere,but I have the DVD versions of the Originals from the Limited Edition collections released in 2006 they look fine,and if a company like Lowry(who did the Bond movie restorations)could get hold of them,they can polish them up even more ready for HD conversion(i have no idea how it is all done,so....er..yeah)

The Bond movies were meticulously restored by frame by frame from the original negatives.

Yup. You can't really make a HD conversion from DVDs. Increasing resolution through some kind of magic algorithm is, sadly, something that only happens in movies and TV shows. Missing data is missing data. A computer can't tell what's missing.

I'd be more inclined to believe that we can choose to play characters as Division agents, or as anarchists / organized criminals.

It's always possible that there are division agents working at odds with each other. different groups of agents with different agenda's and/or orders.

I am almost positive she was this way in the beginning of the comics as well. It wasn't until she became more comfortable with her powers that she was less timid. I "think" something about the way the memories work made her feel off so she was an introvert in the beginning.. However, it has been many years since then, so my memories could be off.

Full trailer here

Got to say I am kind of meh.  It looks fine but it looks like they just followed the sequel playbook a bit too close - bigger everything.  More villains, more explosions, more destruction, etc.  It doesn't look inspired or like it takes any risks.


And what is up with Harry's hair?  Could they have made a more stereotypical "bad guy" look?  

Or they could be building it up to The Sinister Six.. which could be cool if done right. Multiple villains tends to be a bad idea.. but the Sinister Six is after all an actual comic book staple of Spider-Man.

Trailer looks ok. I still don't like that robo-Rhino.  icon_razz

I found the right-hand point-and-say in DR3 to act funny initially - then I went into the "kinect didn't recognize me" option and it cleared it up.

I found that I preferred doing the "voice command" rather than "point and say" for my companions was better. Simply aim (left trigger) and say "scavenge", for example.

I'm not talking about pointing for DR3.   I'm talking about using hand motions on the dashboard.  You have issues with that?  I've gone and done the Kinect didn't recognize me thing when it didn't just auto log me in one time.  Maybe I will give it a try if it doesn't seem to do the hand motion navigation correctly, but now that I think about it, when I selected that, it was asking who to log in and I could see that option...would it give me that if I was already logged in?

If it doesn't connect you to your profile, yes. You can be "logged in" but not recognized as yourself.

I had a Clark Kent moment where wearing my glasses (and different lighting) fooled the Kinect. Once I did the "recognize me" function, it's never had that problem again. According to prior statements from MS (no, I'm not digging up links on this) the Kinect will get to know you better, and it doesn't have that silly move and pose routine anymore since it just keeps updating itself to stay in tune with people.
So like, take me to dinner? Will it ask me my favorite color?

I picture people huddled like Tusken Raiders on hilltops, waiting to take a drone down and scoop up the contents.


As a shipper myself, my first thought was that the professional package thieves who already tail delivery vans are looking at this and thinking "Oh yes, please."

My second thought was that there is no way in hell that UPS, the USPS, and FedEx are going let this happen.
I really don't think UPS, etc.. has anything to worry about...
First off, it's only for small packages. weight is a consideration and it's up to 5 lbs supposedly.. (that seems high to me though). Plus it's limited in range, you have to be 10 miles from a fulfillment center. Also, as was mentioned in an article, this may not be a good idea for urban areas due to theft. (although, if it's within 30 minutes, I suspect people will just wait outside) Plus I suspect "injuries" will occur somewhat regularly.
I would probably be willing to try this once for the novelty, but I think there will be a lot of kinks to work out first.

Not looking that great tbh, give it another year maybe.
I haven't run into any major issues yet.
The article is correct about then pics look and dialog..
I too miss autopilot, but mostly because I used for drink and bathroom breaks.
There are definately bugs, but again, nothing major for me.. I also expected bugs, just like every other game in the series ( and most large and complex games). Only about 2 hours in so far and still in tutorial mode, but I do like it.
Just an update as I have started to hit some of the bugs. In particular, my station I am trying to build as part of the plot stopped building and I had to reload from earlier and do it again. now my station has stopped the ability to expand... Looks like the fixes for this are to edit your save game, but the newly released patch (1.18) may help as well. haven't tried it yet.
I still do like the game, but travel is very tedious. I usually try to just hitch a ride on a cap ship so I can go do something else...
