There's no script necessary. Edit the user's profile in ADUC, set the home drive letter and the home drive share; the drive configured there will be automatically mapped during logon.

Hi jontyplatt,

hit dsc.msc and you'll have ADUC (why they dont use aduc.msc is beyond me)

Cheers!

nothing different from what the other are tellin you..... select the user/s from ADUC go to their profile tab and in the connect to select a drive letter and the connect to box type \\servername\shared folder name\%username%

this should automatically create a folder by their username the the shred folder specified.
