Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
Set WshNetwork = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Network")
Set AllDrives = WshNetwork.EnumNetworkDrives()

DriveLetter = "N:" 'must be capitalized
RemotePath = "\\dave\c"

AlreadyConnected = False
For i = 0 To AllDrives.Count - 1 Step 2
If AllDrives.Item(i) = DriveLetter Then AlreadyConnected = True
Next

If AlreadyConnected = False then
WShNetwork.MapNetworkDrive DriveLetter, RemotePath
WshShell.PopUp "Drive " & DriveLetter & " connected successfully."

Else
WShNetwork.RemoveNetworkDrive DriveLetter
WshShell.PopUp "Drive " & DriveLetter & " disconnected."
End if

This code adds a network drive to address of RemotePath. If the address already exists, removes that... ;)

Hi CSecurity,

Though your script works but it does not specify the Domain account or Domain Distribution list. Can you please help me a bit more?

What you want to do with domain account? You just going to map a network drive and network drive have a path.

You can specify the path in my code and then map it.
