Create a .txt file and insert below lines.  Change your path, driveletters, etc.  Once complete, rename to a .vbs file


Dim objNetwork, strDriveLetter1, StrDriveLetter2
Dim strRemotePath1, strRemotePath2
Dim strnewname1, strnewname2


strDriveLetter1 = "Driveletter:" ' You need to change to drive letter such as F:
strDriveLetter2 = "Driveletter:" ' You need to change to drive letter such as G:

strRemotePath1 = "\\path1\pathfiles" ' You need to implement path to your share ex \\fileserver\share
strRemotePath2 = "\\path2\pathfiles" ' You need to implement path to your share ex \\fileserver2\share

strnewname1 = "Name of Share" ' You need to rename such as share1
strnewname2 = "Name of Share" ' You need to rename such as share2 (any name works

On Error Resume Next
Set objNetwork = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Network")
objNetwork.MapNetworkDrive strDriveLetter1, strRemotePath1
objNetwork.MapNetworkDrive StrDriveLetter2, strRemotePath2

Set objShell = CreateObject("Shell.Application")
objShell.NameSpace(strDriveLetter1).Self.Name = strNewName1
objShell.NameSpace(strDriveLetter2).Self.Name = strNewName2

This is an automated version with NTFS permission setting.
Set up the server configs and test directly from your desktop.
I'm assuming you know how to do the GPO, if not;
