Mapping to a share based on computer name and security group

How would you map to a share on a NAS based on both a security group and a particular computer name?  The backgound on this is that a few users in my organization have access via RDP to a bank of several servers that run some type of high-res mapping software, and those servers will have access to a large share on a NAS.

Is there a way for when these particular users access these servers, that the logon to them will map a drive to the NAS that is shared amongst these servers?  I don't want to map this drive to their normal network logons as they don't need access to this NAS from their regular workstations.

Hope this makes sense...???

Use group policy preferences to map the drive. Assign that GPO to the OU where the workstations are located. Use security group filtering if necessary to limit it to a security group of workstations. You will also need to turn on group policy loopback processing (via GPO) for those workstations so that they will apply the drive mappings (a user setting) to users that logon.
