Domain Logon Script - Mapping Sub-Directories
Posted on 2005-03-07
Ok, I know this is probably pretty basic but I can't seem to figure it out. We have one logon script (n.bat) for the whole company here which maps a shared drive on the sever's domain.
The logon script is "net use n: \\rc.law\files" where 'rc.law' is the domain name and 'files' is the main share. The company is growing and we are beginning to departmentalize. I want to create different logon scripts for different groups using the GPO tool.
In the 'files' directory there are sub-directories for accounting, processing, billing etc. If I use that logon script to map a subdirectory under the main 'files' share it still only maps the root of 'files'. I am deleting the main logon script altogether. I know the GPO logon script is working because I can change the share letter of the script to "W" for example, and that changes when I logon as a test user in that group. However, I can't seem to map down to the sub-directories below the main share e.g. accounting, so that the accounting dept only sees those files and not all the other folders.
I also tried having the logon script use the server name in the script but that doesn't work at all. Where am I wrong here?
