Mapping a local folder to a drive letter in Server 2008
Posted on 2011-09-06
I would like to know if it is possible to take a local folder such as e:\development (local on server 2008) and assign a drive letter to it, so all clients see the e:\development folder as g:?
orginal path -> e:\development
Clients (scripts) that connect to the server see the above path as g: locally.
I am asking since we have an in-house app that will only recognize a hard coded drive letter not a UNC path or share. I know, I know.. not the best practice however I am not the developer, I just need to know if this is possible and if so, how to do it.
subst g: e:\development will not work in this case since it is user based and we do not want to keep a user logged into the server at all times.
Please shoot me any ideas you may have. Thanks!
