Hi

I am trying to setup a logon script so a when a user log's on he will have 5 mapped network drives.  When I googled on how to do this it seems like I need to setup a batch file first.  I know very little about creating batch files, I tried creating one:

***********LOGON SCRIPT***********
net use g: /d
net use h: /d
net use i: /d
net use j: /d
net use k: /d
net use l: /d

net use g: //servername/folder
net use h: //servername/folder
net use i: //servername/folder
net use j: //servername/folder
net use k: //servername/folder
net use l: //servername/folder

I saved this as map.bat, when I ran it on the local machine it worked fine.  However I am unsure on how to get the batch file to run when the user log's on. I tried placing the map.bat file in %SYSTEMROOT%\SYSVOL\domain name\SCRIPTS.  I tried going into user profile, and specifing the logon script as C:\WINNT\SYSVOL\sysvol\DomainName\scripts\map.bat, but that did not work.   I was just wondering could anyboday tell me how to get the batch file to run when the user log's in.
