are you wanting to create that user's folder or what?

mkdir \\computername\share$\%username%

That will create a folder under the network directory share$ with the user's name for the folder name.

Or if you're trying to map a network drive it would be:

net use h: \\computername\share$\%username%

Hope this helps.

Todd's answer is correct if you are talking about creating a simple folder based on the username of the currently logged on user (assuming that user has rights to create a folder on that share).

I'm still curious what you are trying to accomplish.

Because I have 500 users in AD and instead of using the the profile tab for creating home folder path, I would use a .bat to the OU where the users reside.

All 500 Users can be changed/updated at one time.  Simple select ALL the users, then right-click them and select Properties.  All of the properties that are common to User accounts will be available to change - profile and home drive should be included here.

Simply add your line:  \\servername\share$\%username%

Yep, just as AOD has said...

Otherwise like Todd said, you can do:

@echo off
Net Use H: /del
Net Use H: \\server\users\%username% /persistent:no

Save that as the batch file for the login script.

That would make sure that the H drive is deleted if someone has mapped it to something else, then it maps the drive again.

Thanks for the points but....technically Todd answered it first, and AOD gave you a solution as well, so maybe a points split is in order?  Up to the author of course, but I don't feel right just adding to another answer.
