map a drive to a Server not on our domian
Posted on 2006-04-09
I have a server that is in a Workgroup setting(not on a domain). It has a unique IP address and it is connected on our network; but, I need to put this server's shared files available through our logon script. I know 'net use' will work; but, every time these user's will logon, it will prompt them for the server's username and password.
Is there a way to embed the username and password for a Server that is not in our domain and have a drive mapped to this server?
Or is the best way to go about this is to map a drive manually, after the user has logged on, and choose re-connect at logon? There is a prompt to enter the username and password at this network drive setting.
The problem with the latter choice, is that we will have to manually map a drive for every user on every PC that has that software installed on it. That is why I was wondering if there is a way to edit a logon script and to map a drive to a server and have the logon script enter the username and password for this server, in a 'Workgroup'.
