     I'm trying to set up multiple mapped drives that are pushed from the server. one mapped drive is easy. simply going to user properties in active directory under the profile tab allows you to push one drive but i need 2 drives pushed from the server when the users log in to there profiles. if somebody can help me it would be much appreciated

    Make a logon script.


    Replace X: with the drive letter you want to use, replace Server with the name of the server you want to use, replace Share with the name of the share you want to use.

    Make a text file containing one line like the above for each drive you want to map.  Then name the text file something.bat and put it in C:\Windows\Sysvol\sysvol\<your domain>\scripts

    Add the logon script (something.bat) to each user in AD.

    Create a logon script that maps the drives, (such as mapped.bat) store it in the SYSVOL folder and publish it to all the users as a logon script.  The file can be created with Notepad, and simply put in a succession of commands for each drive you want mapped, (such as "net use x: \\servername\sharedfolder")
