mapped drives on a term server 2008

Last Modified: 2014-11-12

i am running server 2008 . most users are terminal services users.
i have been having problems with mapped drives maping. i wrote a bat to accomplish this, and placed it in the start up group , so it will run when users log on.

a comment from an expert states that if i mapped them while on the server , then it will apply to all users who log on. and then i would not need the bat.file.

firstly ,  is that correct, for i was previously told it was not, and i needed the bat.

is there a difference when the administrator logs on at the server, vs. at using terminal server ?
