XML based Mapped Drives script for logon scripts

hi experts,

please refer to

basically, a couple of questions.
1) why do  i need to define a "Sub MapNetworkDrives"?
2) how do i incorporate this into a group policy?

To apply this to the logon user, you have to create/re-use a group policy applied to those users.
In the group policy the setting is under :  "User Configuration", "Windows Settings", "Scripts (Logon/Logoff)", "Logon".

Best practice is to copy the file you want for the Logon script to the Windows clipboard, open the "Logon" setting in the Group Policy editor, press the "Show Files..." button, and paste the desired file in the dialog.

You can select the file and edit it in this dialog as well. This is easier than navigating in Windows Explorer to the folder where Group Policy Logon scripts are saved.

FOr the script itself logon, you can use wscript.exe or cscript.exe command line in GPO or in a batch.

Be carefull about :
  • GPO must be at least user's GPO
  • to use vbs, client must be at least w2000
  • to enforce security, you can "encode" your vbs in vbe format
The use of a separate sub is a matter of code cleaning.

About integrating it into group policy... I'm not very sure, I supose you can execute your script through calls to WSH from within your groups logon scripts
