Using Net Use command
Posted on 2005-03-14
Can someone answer my question for me. I am trying to automate connecting a mapped drive to a server. The problem that I have is all computers are part of a workgroup and the server is windows 2003( don't ask me I ddi not set it up). Any way the user has a laptop that he travels with when ever he returns he always calls me to re-map his q dirve to the server. When I run the following command it gives me invalid sytax. I think my confusion is I do not know if I should use the domain name when trying to connec tto the server or the workgroup name. the user name is, for this purpose, ernie and the domain would be bajatc, password I will just put in password and change it to the real one when i copy the file over. Can someone tell me what is incorrect with my syntax?
NET USE Q: \\the-big-one\NETSOL quickbooks 5.0 /USER:ernie@domainname password
The workstation is winXP and the server is server 2003. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
