I have mapped drives for my users on my terminal/xenapp server however in explorer they are seeing the entire path the of the drive, is there a way to add something in my net use logon script to just show drive letter and the folder that is being mapped rather than the entire \\server\share path?

You could try this:

I used this vbs script:

mDrive = "the drive letter you'd like:"
Set oShell = CreateObject("Shell.Application" )
oShell.NameSpace(mDrive).Self.Name = "What you want to call the drive"

in conjuction with a batch script that mapped the share.
Works like a charm!
