Windows server 2003 drive mapping & logon scripts
Posted on 2006-11-04
Hi can somebody help me with examples of logon VB script for Wondows 2003 & drive mapping.
I will try keep this as simple as possible! I have active directory set up with an domain name called "convert.com".
DHCP is set up to allocate IP to my clients & DNS for the domain name with forwerders for my ISP DNS address.
Everything is well with the clients loging on to the domain and i have shared folders on the server which can be accessed by typing in \\servername\\sharename.
I want to map my folder shares so that when a user logs on the shares appear under "my computer" on the clients.
I know how to map a drive by using the "Map Network drive" option on windows 2003 but how do i make them appear under "My Computer" on the clients on the network???????????
should they automatically appear under "My Computer"??? on the clients after they have been mapped on the server or d0 you have to search for them via my network places????
I have for example two users on my for example username , jreid & Jhankin
Both these users also have a folder on the server \\servername\\jreid & \\servername\\jhankin
I would like these users to have their shared folders mapped as a network drive under "My computer" on the client when they log on.
I would like their folder to appear as drive H for example along with some other folders mapped too.
To do this do I understand I need a logon VB script which is created in note pad, saved with a VBS ext and placed in the group policy , users, windows settings,
logon scripts in Active directory OU.
Can anyone provide me with an example of a logon script i can use to test this???
if im using a logon script does that mean that the shares are mapped and shared by the script alone or do you still need to share the folders and map as drives as well???????
Any help much appreciated
