Greetings all,

Does anyone have a sample logon script that maps network drives based on user name.

Eg if username between a-k then map n: = server1
    if username between l-z then map n: = server2

Something like this should work:

set objNet = CreateObject("Wscript.Network")
select case left(objNet.UserName,1)
      
      case "A","a","B","b"    'keep going to k
            'code to map to server 1
                case "L","l","M","m"    'keep going to z
                                'code to map to server 2

End Select

I have found the answer on microsofts website

http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/script56/html/wsconcreatingautomatingloginscrip.asp

Here is the vbs logon script example

// JScript.
var oNet, sUser, cInitial, startTime;
oNet = new ActiveXObject("WScript.Network");
// Get the user name. On Windows 98 and Windows ME, the use may not be logged
// on when the script starts running; keep checking every 1/2 a
// second until they are logged on
sUser = oNet.UserName;
startTime = new Date();
while (sUser == "")
{
   var curTime = new Date();
   if (curTime – startTime > 30000) WScript.Quit();
   WScript.Sleep(500);
   sUser = oNet.UserName;
}
// Add a share for the "h" drive and the printer, based on the
// first letter of the user's name
cInitial = sUser.charAt(0).toUpperCase();
if (cInitial < "L")
{
   oNet.MapNetworkDrive("h:", "\\\\server1\\users\\" + sUser);
   oNet.AddWindowsPrinterConnection("\\\\printer1\\hp", "HP LaserJet 4");
}
else
{
   oNet.MapNetworkDrive("h:", "\\\\server2\\users\\" + sUser);
   oNet.AddWindowsPrinterConnection("\\\\printer2\\hp", "HP LaserJet 4");
}

' VBScript.

Option Explicit
Dim oNet, sUser, cInitial, startTime
' Helper object
Set oNet = CreateObject("WScript.Network")
' Get the user name. On Windows 9x, the use may not be logged
' on when the script starts running; keep checking every 1/2 a
' second until they are logged on.
sUser = oNet.UserName
startTime = Now
Do While sUser = ""
   If DateDiff("s", startTime, Now) > 30 Then Wscript.Quit
   Wscript.Sleep 500
   sUser = oNet.UserName
Loop
' Add a share for the "h" drive and the printer, based on the
' first letter of the user's name
cInitial = UCase(Left(sUser, 1))
If (cInitial < "L") Then
   oNet.MapNetworkDrive "h:", "\\server1\users\" & sUser
   oNet.AddWindowsPrinterConnection "\\printer1\hp", "HP LaserJet 4"
Else
   oNet.MapNetworkDrive "h:", "\\server2\users\" & sUser
   oNet.AddWindowsPrinterConnection "\\printer2\hp", "HP LaserJet 4"
End If
