Please see code below. This is a vbscript.

Set objNetwork = CreateObject("WScript.Network") 
strDriveLetter = "H:" 
strHomeServer = "\\server\users\" 
strUserName =objNetwork.UserName 
objNetwork.MapNetworkDrive strDriveLetter, strHomeServer & strUserName

Open in new window

no you can do it exactly like you are saying except you need to to use proper unc convention

\\server\users\%username%

or in vb
\\\\server\\users\\%username%

It's easiest to do this in active directory. Locate the user, right click and go to properties. Click the Profile tab and fill in the local path in the home folder section. Now just have the user login and that drive is mapped.

If it has to be a login script the line should look like this:
net use u: \\servername\users\%username%

Please note the space between the u: and the \\.
