Is it possible to disable the ability to Map a Network Folder

By balfour ·
I administer a W2K3 domain for a medium company, and in the process of tidying up the domain, I have implemented logon scripts that handle the mapping of all required network drives for each user/client workstation. I would now like to disallow the privelege that allows users to map their own Network Drives, so that they don't Map to the wrong data set. Is this possible?

Configure the settings in GP User Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Windows Explorer. Remove "Map Network Drive" and "Disconnect Network Drive".

This will remove the Map Network Drive and Disconnect Network Drive commands from the toolbar and Tools menus in Explorer and My Network Places and removes these commands from menus that appear when you right-click the Windows Explorer or My Network Places icons.
