Currenly I mapping a users "h" home drive with an entry in the users properties under the home folder path. I would like to script so that when users log in they are mapped to their h drive on a server.

Each user has a shared with with the correct permissions on the server. The share is username$
So in the home folder properties its \\server\username$

Thanks in advance

I would also like to use DFS, so the location of the home drive would be \\domain\share\share\username$

Hi,

As i understand correctly, you do NOT wish to use the AD integrated homefolder option en want to script it ?

How about this in the loginscript:

Net use H: \\domain\share\share\%username%$

Where you use the environment variable %username%

If I do not understand correctly please say so :p

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Set objSysInfo = CreateObject("ADSystemInfo")
 
strUser = objSysInfo.UserName
Set objUser = GetObject("LDAP://" & strUser)
 
strUserName = objUser.samAccountName
 
strDrive = "\\domain\share\share\" & strUserName & "$"
 
Set objNetwork = CreateObject("Wscript.Network")
objNetwork.MapNetworkDrive "H:", strDrive

Open in new window
