Which action for drive mapping GPO for new file server location

DollaBillz 121 Reputation points

I have a GPO that currently maps my users network drives to \Server1\files and I'm wanting to migrate them to a new server called \Server2\files. When I update the GPO, which action do I use (replace or update). The drive letters are going to remain the same, I just need to direct them to the new server.

    Based on my understanding , you just want to change the path of the mapping drive,right?
    In this situation , when you edit the GPO (on which the mapping drive was created ), we can change the path directly and use the action "update "
    Here is my test :
    The mapping drive was defined a drive letter M at first.The path was \server1\924
    Then i changed the path to :\dc1\924 ,the action was "update"
    Then log off and log in 2 times, the result would be :
