Hai marco, 

I've looked for a good example. 

Only, i say use \\FQDN\share not \\HOSTNAME\share 

Basicly, the above site says, ( the importent part ) 

Note that drive maps actions are all based on the drive letter. 
Action ?Create? and ?Update? will not work if the drive letter already in use. 
In this case, the action ?Delete? or ?Replace? might be helpful.

And key here is, dont use reconnect also for the user home.

In that example, in Global set driver letter which everyone used in the drive mappings
Set the user drive mappings on the Sites and enforce these.

Windows caching, maybe these are helpfull for you.
