policy not applying

hi, problem is  network drives (mapped by a batch file  and as part of the policy)
are not appearing for some usres

I cant see any deffinet pattern r reason

the same user name will get the drives if they logon o another machine,  but then other users will get them if logged on to the first troublesome machine.

w2003 server

batch file added to usrs logon script

w2000kpro client

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.

the batch file does work if copied to client and ran under there login
Where does the Batch file reside currently? Should be in your NETLOGON directory
Can you post the batch file here?

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