Setup
I have UNIX Server/s that share volumes and Windows W2K(SP2/SP4) clients that access these share
using SFU

Problem
Whenever I try to map a UNIX shared volume; I'm prompted for authentication (SFU) and on authenticatin
I'm able to access these shares. However, I'd like to run a batch file and or set these up to mapdrives
connect at logon and not have to do this for everytime I logon

A simple batch file with a set of 'net use' commands works beautifully for mapping Windows Shares

Question
How do I set this up to auto-map UNIX shares at logon

Note
Tried re-connect at Logon: This doesn't work. The auto-mapped drives seem to lose it's authenticatio
(I can read/but not write) when I re-logon. So, I have to re-authenticate these connections to get bac
the proper access rights

You can specify password using net use; though you have to weigh whether you want the plain text password in the script.
