Setup up persistent drive mappings that are available when no user is logged in

Hi,

We have a couple of Windows 2003 servers that require persistent drive mappings to be available when users aren't logged in, or after the servers are restarted.  

No worries with the batch files, but I guess I'm just trying to work out the best way of doing this.  Any ideas would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Dave

I ended up creating a scheduled task that runs on startup, which looks to have sorted this out.  Thanks for the feedback. Cheers, Dave
