I do a lot of ghosting and SID changing to role out workstations. I'd like Ghost to grab the image file from a network share. This will save me having to remove the hard drive all the time. Don't worry, Ghosting works and I've solved issues with duplicate SIDS and workstation names :) All I want to know is how I can map a Win2003 share to a drive in DOS via a bootup CD. As you will see below, the bootup CD works and has the correct NIC drivers as an IP address is allocated to it via DHCP.
It's simply an access issue?
So far I've created a bootable CD with networking support and ghost. Followed instructions from http://www.nu2.nu/bootcd/
The problem I have is gaining access to the network share. The network interface is working as an IP has been allocated from the Server (also acting as DHCP).
Tried various commands using 'net'. Do I need to use Net Logon .... before Net Use?
net logon <username> /DOMAIN:<domain> /SAVEPW:NO
(this then asks for the password)
I am substituting the correct details but all attempts come back as Access Denied or The specified network password is not correct. All passwords on the Server are alphanumeric (upper and lower case) and contain a symbols. Can DOS support passwords like these? I'd imagine Yes as I've never had a problem using characters in Batch files.
Let's imagine the username is 'Dos' and Domain is 'Money' and Password is '1234pA+'.
How can I connect? Anything need to be done on the Win2003 Server?
Hope this all makes sense.
Note: Just thought, does the workstation need to be a member of the domain? Obviously it is when Windows is loaded but not when in DOS.
