Where does the Batch file reside currently? Should be in your NETLOGON directory
Can you post the batch file here?

not the most complicated


net use m: \\fileserver\share
net use l: \\fileserver\share

thats it

i added a new line mapping to adiffernt server share and it worked,

but then this batch file works iof run manually i can resolve everythinbg  very puzzling

Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.

If the client PC's are running the batch on login but not completing as desired, something is not being interpeted correctly. Try this:

@echo on
@net time \\SERVERNAME /set /yes

@net use M: \\SERVERNAME\SHARE1 /y
@net use I: \\SERVERNAME\SHARE2 /y

If that wont work try this vb script instead:

Set objNetwork = CreateObject("WScript.Network")
' Forces script to skip errors (rem below line to see errors)
on error resume next
Dim WshNetwork
Set WshNetwork = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Network")

WshNetwork.RemoveNetworkDrive "M:"
WshNetwork.RemoveNetworkDrive "I:"

WshNetwork.MapNetworkDrive "M:", "\\SERVERNAME\SHARE1"
WshNetwork.MapNetworkDrive "I:", "\\SERVERNAME\SHARE2"

'  End of My VBScript

Hope that does it for you.
