I know there is a lot of answers for mapping drives in expert-exchange. What I want to do is mapping drives only when logging on the client-computers, not when logging on the server.

Is that possible ??

You could use a logon script that checks for the servername environment variable before executing:

if %COMPUTERNAME% = server goto end

net use * \\server\resource

:end

STOHNSERVER should have been server.

Try this (note double = sign):


\\SERVER\Clients\Setup\setup.exe /s STOHNSERVER

if %COMPUTERNAME% == yourserver goto end

net use f: /Delete
net use g: /Delete
net use h: /Delete

net use f: \\server\programs
net use g: \\server\enkelt
net use h: \\server\faelles

:end

net time /set /y
