map to drives in Novell domain on boot
Posted on 2003-03-26
I have a situation where the users W2K machines need to have a drive mapped automatically to a W2K server that sits in a different Novell domain. The actual mapping of the drive (domain login, etc.) should be transparent to the user.
Presently I have a .cmd file containing the net use command sitting in the \Start Menu\Programs\Startup directory to map the drive on boot up. The problem is that this file can be opened in edit mode revealing the login and password for the other domain.
How can I set up automatic mapping of this drive so that the domain login is transparent to the user? I believe there is something that can be done with a script with the userid and password hidden in a registry key but I don't know how to do this.
