Hi,

I have the following entered into a script:

If IsMemberOf("LandMaster") Then
      MapDrive "f:","\\dc01\data"
End If

However the script runs without error but the drive is not mapped.  Can somebody tell me where I may be going wrong.

Many thanks

If you are doing this as part of a login script, the code below should work:



Set oShell=CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
Set WN=WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Network")

'Get Username
UserName=oShell.ExpandEnvironmentStrings("%USERNAME%")

'Write Username to event log for debugging
WriteLog 4,"[VBScript.VBS] UserName:" & UserName

' *** Be sure to put your domain name in the line below, between the slashes
Set usr=GetObject("WinNT://DomainNameGoesHere/" & UserName & ",user")

For Each grp in usr.groups
      Select Case UCASE(grp.name)
      Case "LANDMASTER"
            Oshell.LogEvent 4,"[VBScript] Mapping Drive for Group: " + grp.name
            WN.MapNetworkDrive "F:", "\\dc01\data"
            
      Case Else
            'For Debugging, write users group memberships to event log
            Oshell.LogEvent 4,"[VBScript] GroupMember:-" + grp.name
      End Select
Next
