Hi

I want to add a login script for a non domain win2k server so when users login to their computer it maps the drive to the non domain server so they can access it without having to use a username and password.

The users are all part of a domain so it would be handy to add this to the GPO.

I'm not sure about how to setup the script. I guess it would be along the lines of: net use x: \\server\share

How do I add the username and password so it logs them in without asking them.

I've setup a username and password on the non domain server to use in the script.

Thanks

Hi

when I use the net use: x \\server\share /user:username password  i get "The credentials supplied conflict with an existing set of credentials."

Any reason why I would get this?
