is "W" drive letter the same for MN and MI? I mean is it actually mapped to the same server and share?
yes..."W" is the same in every location, but once it gets to the location folder (ex. MN) then that is a different server.
We are all on the same global domain.
they are the same but different? Ok, I think I have it now, but just to make sure...
MN and MI both have W drives mapped to the same "\\server\share" locations.
Now those in MN have W:\AMER\Owatonna\Engineering\Admin\MN
and those in MI have W:\AMER\Owatonna\Engineering\Admin\MI
is that your setup?
We have multiple sites and locations etc but I take care of the different servers and paths through mapping a different H drive depending on the site/needs. So one persons H goes to "\\serverA\templates" and another persons H goes to "\\serverB\MEDtemplates" ... so when I deploy settings that say H, it's taken care of outsite of SW so I can deploy the same settings to everyone but everyone is different. I think you mean that your setup is not this way.
Probably the best way I can think of is to find that path in the registry and export it so you can deploy that setting for MI and MN sites seperately.
