I know it is in here some were but I can not find it.  I need help to develop a login script for users in groups and sub groups.  

I am using nested groups and need a better way to find out what groups a user belongs to that way I came up with seems too complicated.

If I try to use
Const DEP = "cn=01-0#-00"
to map a departmental drive or printer I do not get any response.  "cn=01-0#-00" only contains groups not any users.  

The actual groups that users are in look like this
Const FAC-A = "cn=01-0#-01-0A"
or
Const STA-A = "cn=01-0#-02-0A"
or
Const STU-A = "cn=01-0#-09-0A"
if I map a drive or printer to one of these I get great results but then I repeated code for department or devision shared resources.

here is my structure:
All staff members for a give department are put into these groups:
Const STA-A = "cn=01-0#-02-0A"
Const STA-B = "cn=01-0#-02-0B"
Const STA-C = "cn=01-0#-02-0C"
Const STA-D = "cn=01-0#-02-0D"
Const STA-E = "cn=01-0#-02-0E"
Const STA-F = "cn=01-0#-02-0F"

All of the staff groups for a give division are put into this group:
Const STA = "cn=01-0#-02-00"
This group "cn=01-0#-02-00" is also a member of the divisions all users group.

Is there a way to determine the groups a user belongs to when the login and then from that information map drives and assign printers?

I hope I gave enough info for someone to be able to help.  Been at this for a few hours now and my eyes are giving out.
