Hi All,

Is there a way of adding a number of web folders (to our company sharepoint site) to the My Network Places folder on each client PC using Domain Policy?

Any info appreciated.

It's actually easier to put them into the login script than a Domain Policy since that's how SBS functions.

The default login script is at \\SERVERNAME\NETLOGON\SBS_LOGIN_SCRIPT.bat.  You'll find an overview of how to edit this script here:  http://sbsurl.com/login, although that page doesn't specifically explain how to add links in the Network Places folder.

To do that you would just need to create a link to the specific directory and save the link in the \NETLOGON share on your SBS, then add this line to the SBS_LOGIN_SCRIPT.bat file:

copy shortcut.lnk %userprofile%/NetHood/

Create a separate link and copy line for each one you want added to the user's Network Places folder.
