    Hello...

    I have a customer with SBS 2008 Standard.

    I have setup DRIVE MAPS in the Group Policy Mangement Editor under User
    Preferances.

    My question is, what does the red triangle mean over drive maps in
    preferances server 2008?

    There is a little red triangle over the Drive ICON to the left of the Drive
    Letter I setup.

    Anyone have any ideas what that means? I am concerned because it is RED
    like warning or an error...?

    Please advise

    The various symbols are indications how the drive is created. In your case,
    you chose "replace" (as I recall red is replace, yellow is update, etc.)
    Replace mode works by existing the existing mapping (the same as if you set
    it to remove) and then doing a new create mapping (same as the create
    setting) which has the net effect of obliterating any settings that may have
    been pushed out by another group policy preference such as customized
    settings, etc. So yes, it is a warning of sorts, but not a concern if you
    know what your other group policies are doing and if you are okay with the
    old mapping getting destroyed each time.

    It is a warning of sorts that tells you that the drive is being replaced and you are
    aware of your Group Policies and their implications.
