below script map \\localhost\i$ as S drive. if s: exist it will disconnect it and then final line of code will map the drive.

Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set objNetwork = CreateObject("WScript.Network")
strLocalDrive = "S:"
strRemoteShare = "\\localhost\I$"
if(ObjFSO.DriveExists(strLocalDrive)) then
objNetwork.RemoveNetworkDrive strLocalDrive, True, True
end if
objNetwork.MapNetworkDrive strLocalDrive, strRemoteShare

Here's a login script I've used for a client in the past. It includes a bit of logic that lets me map special drives for specific user accounts, and also map a "personal" shared drive for each employee.

All users get the H:\ drive mapped to their personal shared folder
Two special users - jsmith and janedoe, get a special folder mapped to the G:\ drive.
Everybody else gets the F:\ drive mapped to a different shared folder

NETLOGON.BAT:
if (%username%)==(jsmith) goto jsmith
if (%username%)==(janedoe) goto janedoe
goto otherusers

REM jsmith doesn't have access to the F drive. Make sure it isn't mapped
:jsmith
net use F: /delete
net use G: /delete
net use G:  \\SERVER1\CompanyPublic
goto allusers

REM janedoe doesn't have access to the F drive. Make sure it isn't mapped
:janedoe
net use F: /delete
net use G: /delete
net use G:  \\SERVER1\CompanyPublic
goto allusers

REM everybody else gets the F drive mapped
:otherusers
net use F: /delete
net use F:  \\SERVER1\Data
goto allusers

REM all users get the H drive mapped to their personal storage folder
:allusers
net use H: /delete
net use H: \\SERVER1\UserShares\%username%
goto exit

:exit

Ok, i got the syntax down but the script will not start automatically when i login to domain. i can start it manually and it works fine. i put the login.bat in c:\windows\sysvol\domain name\scripts and it does not launch automatically. what am i doing wrong?

You either have to specify the script to run in a Group policy, or put the name in the logon script field in the users profile tab in Active directory. If you do the latter, do not put a full path in there, because it by default uses the scripts path. So in your case, just add login.bat in the field.

So I would say it just depends on the amount of users you have to edit which way you prefer.

Hope this helps,
