I have an issue with logon script.
I’ve created batch file for mapping drives and it working fine.
Now I’m trying to add shared printers to this file. Shared folders and printers located on same Windows 2003 server. Workstations all Win_XP.
Mapped drive reconnecting – no problem, Printers- Error 67.
They are Network Printers with IPs that I can ping from workstation, but if I use command NET USE I’m getting error.
Any help will be appreciated.

          Can you manually map the printers to the workstations? Would you be able to post your batch file so I can look at it?

           Also on a side note if you wish to do away with batch files and make all VB login scripts and push those out through group policy I can paste some template scripts on here that you can modify as needed and push out through your enterprise as login scripts.

    Hope this helps,

    Error 67 means that it cannot find the network path, it means that the path to the printer is probably wrong.
    if you have spaces in the share name you probably need to use " " around it.

    Thank you for the responds guys.

    Yes, i can manually map printers to the workstations.
    Yes, i used "" for the printers, that has spaces in the share name.
    Here is the txt from Batch file that i'm using for maped drives:

    @echo off

    net use W: /delete /yes
    net use P: /delete /yes
    net use P: \\server3\public
    net use W: \\server3\public\Public_Documents
