Hello,

Mapped drives are being a pain in the *ss for users who currently go alot working offsite, because login takes ages.

Thing is, IF we make a script for logoff to delete mapped drives, they will complain when they connect through VPN and mapped drives doesn't show up.

Suggestions solving this matter?

You could do a check in the login script to see if they are connected to the office and if so map drive.
When using VPN, you could ask them to run a batch file to map the relevant drives.

thats the unwanted case, running anything.

Users just complain, nothing else, we have to prevent that whining.

Ok solution with no whining

Login script to
Check office connection and if connected, map drive

VPN connection - instead of the normal VPN link that they use to open a VPN connection. write a two line batch file -
1. Line 1 - run the VPN - which prompts them to login etc
2. Line 2 - map drives

Hows that?
