Login Script Drive Mapping Issue

Posted on 2012-03-21

I have the following code in my login script:

If (IsMember(objUser, "Office Users") = True) Then
    On Error Resume Next
    objNetwork.MapNetworkDrive "g:", "\\165.123.32.3\share"
    If (Err.Number <> 0) Then
        On Error GoTo 0
        objNetwork.RemoveNetworkDrive "g:", True, True
        objNetwork.MapNetworkDrive "g:", "\\165.123.32.3\share"
    End If
    On Error GoTo 0
End If

Open in new window


It is supposed to map drive G: but I am prompted for a username & password if I run the script manually. How can I embed the username & password for to access this drive inside the code I have listed above?

So it would look like this? I can't test it at this time but will in about 2 or 3 hours...


If (IsMember(objUser, "Office Users") = True) Then
    On Error Resume Next
    objNetwork.MapNetworkDrive "g:", "\\165.123.32.3\share"
    If (Err.Number <> 0) Then
        On Error GoTo 0
        objNetwork.RemoveNetworkDrive "g:", True, True
        objNetwork.MapNetworkDrive "g:", "\\165.123.32.3\share"
        strUser = theusername
        strPassword = thepassword
    End If
    On Error GoTo 0
End If

yes but I said why does it require the user and password in the script it suggests that the office permissions are not on the share
