Hi

I want to map network drives based on if a user is in a particluar user group in AD . I guess using the login script ie dos bacth file , net use command

ie I gave a user group called sales

I login as joe bloggs who is in the sales group in the local domain  . The login script does a if statement to determine if Joe Bloggs is in that group or not

ie  " if  "user" Part of  "  Sales Group" Then
              net use L: \\Server\Share
                 else
                  End


Ie something like that I suppose ???

Also can ths work across multiple domains ? ie map a drive to another share on a another server in a different Domain ?

The IFMEMBER utility included in the NT/2000 resource kit will do this.  See info at http://www.win2000mag.com/Articles/Index.cfm?ArticleID=5869

An alternative to using a batch file login script is to use a VBScript.  Do a web search and you should find plenty of samples.

You should be able to map drives across domains providing the appropriate trusts are in place.

Might help ??? I create containers (OU), I just put a straight dos batch with the proper net use in the container i want to give the specific shares to. I keep the groups to assign access rights only. Makes my life easier. I used to use the IFMember utility back in winNT4 and it works fine.

Remember with login scripts... LESS IS MORE.  If loops and that are great... BUT if you can break it down into OUs and assign login scripts to each OU group logins will be quicker and less complex.
