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
