VB Script to Map a Hidden Network Share in a Different Domain

Hello,

I am trying to write a VB logon script for specific users in my domain to map to a hidden network share in a different domain.  When I try to reference the hidden share in my script the conventional way.

WSHNetwork.MapNetworkDrive "i:", "\\Server\D$"

It errors out.  This is because I must reference the other domain somehow in the script.  The usernames and passwords match in both domains, but the UPN prefix is obviously different.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi, try specifying the username and password manually, to see what happens:

WSHNetwork.MapNetworkDrive "i:", "\\Server\d$", False, "domain\username", "password"

Regards,

Rob.
