Sure.  Put this in the loging script:

#net use <drive letter>:   \\servername\sharename

If the user name and password to the windows server are the same as for NetWare, the mapping should happen automagically.  If not, you'll need to pass the password along on the NET USE command line.

We have tried this and it works when we do it from a command promt, but when we add it to the login script, it does not work. There are no errors and it does not map the drive. Any ideas?

Been a while since I've done this.  The syntax may be;

@net use ..

using @ symbol instead of #

But I know I've done it before, and I'm pretty sure that was all it took.  Again, presuming the username and passwords match.

Well the # symbol just tells the login script to wait until the mapping is done and the @ symbol tells it just to run all... So not sure why it does not run, but I will be back at the client site on Friday and I guess can look at this again.

That's all you should need.  Perhaps quotes around the share path??

#net use z: "\\server\share"

The "net use" command is Windows, "MAP" is Netware:

MAP ROOT X:=\\Server\Directory
"MAP ROOT X">>>This command is case sensitive use all caps.

For it to map only to the sever use:
IF MEMBER OF "GroupName" THEN MAP ROOT X:=\\Server\Directory


The # command causes a file to execute and waits to execute rest of login script.  The @ command executes a command then continues with the login script

We never got the login script to run correctly. We finally got them off of Netware so it is no longer an issue. None of the steps would work for mapping the drives....
