I'm trying to create a script in 2000 server that will look to see if a user belongs to a group. If the user belongs that that group, it will map a drive to a volume so the user is able to run an application.

i'm sure there are plenty of vbscripts that will do this. but, i believe you can do this with group policy. would probably be a lot easier if you're not a script expert. just create a group, put users in it, create a group policy, under login scripts section(be sure to do this under the user section in the group policy object) create a little dos batch file that maps the users to the desired drive (net use x: \\server\share). assign the gpo to the new user group you created, and you're all set.

i did this frequently at my last place with no problems.

hth,
kris.
