Mapped Drives Pane

Getting there

Mapped drives are available to client terminal sessions.

Note: Items on this pane can be configured globally or as part of a subconfiguration.


The options are:


Inherit drives

This option is available only if you are creating or editing a subconfiguration. When Inherit drives is checked, the client user inherits mapped drive settings from any applicable configuration higher in the following order of inheritance:

client host

For example, if you enable Inherit drives for a user and disable it for a group to which that user belongs, the user inherits directories configured for the group, but does not inherit client host and global drives.

Note: Inherited global drives show up in the directory list as read-only entries. Applicable group drives may also be visible as read-only entries. Inherited drives from client host subconfigurations are applied when the user connects, and are not visible in this list.
