where to supply password for user1 in logonscript

Could anyone let us know where to supply the password in the following statement?

net use e: \\appsvr\D$ /user:appsvr\user1

Use this

net use x: \\server\share /user:username *

Where * = password

Why are you trying to connect to an administrative share in a logon script?

This is not the correct way of doing things.

If you need to, reshare the root as something else, then you won't need to administratively connect
Rob WilliamsCommented:
net  use  e:  \\appsvr\D$  password   /user:domainame\user1
net  use  e:  \\appsvr\D$  password   /user:user1@doaminname.xyz

I agree I wouldn't share the root

Both Leew and RobWill have a very valid point. This is a ts enviornment, and we have some customized code that uses drive E:\ on the old app server. When we moved the application to a new TS server, we couldn't customize it since we don't have the source code, but we needed to map d: to e: which would make our application to work properly.

Since RobWill's statement works, we will give him the points.

Thanks all!

Why not just use SUBST instead of mapping back to a drive?
