Does anyone know how to insert a domain name into a command line for a script? Example: \\ServerName\Users\%UserName%\

I tried using %domainname% but is doesn't work.

I am trying to use universal scripts for DFS, Example: \\%domainname%\Public Share

This is what I was looking for, but it will not allow me to use %USERDNSDOMAIN% in folder redirection GPO. I am trying to redirect the My Docs folder to \\%USERDNSDOMAIN%\UserData$\. It works when I type it into run, but not when I insert it into root path under folder redirection. Do you know a way to get this to work?

Is the domain going to change based upon the person?

So something like \\servername.domain\users\%username% does not work?

Instead of putting it in under folder redirection, you can do it also by creating/modifying a startup script, which will do something you like. Batch script is run on user's computer and will recognise all environment variables.
