KIX script: map drive based on OU membership

I am trying to convert our current vbs login script to kix script.

The script maps a drive based on OU membership, eg:
===============================
select case LCase (oParent.name)
     case "ou=execs"
      oNet.RemoveNetworkDrive "S:"
      oNet.MapNetworkDrive "S:", "\\CORPFS01\Execs$"
end select
==============================

I want to do the same thing with KIX, but am having no luck in getting the IF inOU("Execs") variable working.

Is there a simple way to do this?


Mapping drives via group memberships is working fine by using
IF InGroup("groupname") =1
   use f: \\corpfs01\fileshare
ENDIF

What am I missing???????

in kix there is no InOU() command.

but there is a really nice InContainer() UDF that can be found here.  http://www.kixtart.org/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=82433&site_id=1#import

Thankyou Isorg.  I shall setup the UDF and try to call from the script.  Any tips?

Isorg, the InContainer() and dependent TranslateName() UDF's worked a treat.  I have included both in a seperate UDF (.kxf) file, called them from the script, and got the result I wanted.  Brilliant.
