Mapped Drives Script Long Login Time

We have a group of users that we have a login script for that maps drives. if they are at work then it works great. but, it they take their laptops home then their login time goes to 5-7 minutes. How do you suggest we fix the script so when they are off the network it does not try to map the drives????

Just have a line in your script that checks for the existance of a known server file. If that file exists, your on the network so process your drive maps. If the file does NOT exist, your NOT on the network so DONT process your drive maps.

IF EXISTS  \\servername\share\file.ext (
do file maps
) ELSE (
Dont
)

NLKornolio,

do you have an example?

Alandc,

how would this stop the script from trying to connect the mapped drives when it's off the network?

Srry no not really skilled in scripting and google doesnt give me an example.

Thougth you could say only map drives if connected to the work network profile. So not for home or public.

You looked at offline foldering ?
