Is this possible? I would like to use Group Policy and VB

We already have a VB logon script that maps drives. The problem is that there are 3 computers that need Drive P mapped to a different server. There are MACHINES that need to different, no USERS.

Thanks,

Jim

Yep.  you can.  Like Pete says, just access the environment variable %computername% and make it a conditional.

Can anyone type the script for me?

Here is what I have done; It doesn't seem to remove the Old Mapped P: drive until I manually disconnec it, then it will work properly
