Good information but there may still be an issue.  I have successfully created a new DFS link but the logon.bat file in the AD account calls a KIX script.  I opened the existing kix logon file in Wordpad and see the existing mapping and added an additional one for the new DFS pointer yet when I logon to test this the new drive letter isn't mapped.  Do you have any familiararity with Kix?  Isn't it as simple as editing the file, saving it or does it need to be compiled with the WKIX32.EXE?

I'm close - thanks for the help!

I am not familiar with KIX. Could you just use a net use command in the batch file? Another alternative would be to use Group Policy Preferences.
use netuse
net use x: \\servername\sharedfolder

it may take time for the replication DFS share created

Thanks but those suggestions won't work here.  Does anyone have familiarity with Kix?
