Group Policy Map Drive Not Working

I went into Server 2008 GPO, created a new GPO. I went to user config > preferences > windows settings > map drives

I created a new drive mapping,

Action: Create
Location: \\server2008\hr private
Checked Reconnect
Labeled: hr private
Selected P: as my drive map

Linked this to my HR group.

Before this I create the folder, gave everyone full share rights and gave the HR group full rights.

If I login as the user I don't get the drive mapping but I can access it by \\server2008\hr private

Am I missing something else?

Start with using gpresult.exe or rsop.msc on one of the machines and see if your policy is listed as being applied. Also, check your event logs for errors when the machine is trying to process the policy.
