Okay here is our problem today. We are running a win2000 server in our school district that serves a application that logs student information. In order for this program to work properly we map that specific drive where every teacher has a login and password. The problem is on certain xp machines the drive mapping fails (it shows it as mapped but you have to password in again everytime) on the reboot. There is no timeout or anything its only when you reboot. I have read a couple of other similar problems on here that were solved by writing batch files but I havent done that in years, could someone walk me through that to build that batch file? Sorry, I am sure this is elementary to most of you but I cannot remember how to do it. Thanks.
