# Windows 2008 VB logon script map drive by group membership

Posted on 2013-01-04

Hello,

I used a basic VB script I found on a microsoft site.  The home directory part is working but the group membership mappings are not working. If anyone can tell me what Im doing wrong id appreciate it.  Here is the script I used:

Const Finance_GROUP     = "cn=SG_Finance"
Const IT_GROUP          = "CN=SG_IT"

Set wshNetwork = CreateObject("WScript.Network")
wshNetwork.MapNetworkDrive "h:","\\njfile\us$\" & wshNetwork.UserName Set adSysInfo = CreateObject("ADSystemInfo") Set CurrentUser = GetObject("LDAP://" & ADSysInfo.UserName) strGroups = LCase(Join(CurrentUser.MemberOf)) If InStr(strGroups, finance_GROUP) Then wshNetwork.MapNetworkDrive "J:","\\njfile\finance" ElseIf InStr(strGroups, IT_GROUP) Then wshNetwork.MapNetworkDrive "J:","\\njfile\it$\"

End If

Very simple the line

"strGroups = LCase(Join(CurrentUser.MemberOf))"

StrGroups is a array value and you should be spliting the array into its different value like

StrGroups(0), StrGroups(1)......and so on and check for the appropriate group.

the scipt itself looks ok as the Join function merges all the array elements of CurrentUser.MemberOf into a single string.

Wscript.echo strgroups

after the line that creates StrGroups to check what it's value is. ?

May need to check that it is not empty as well.

the link provided by kent shows a different object used to get membership.
as does this... which i know works.
' ****************************************************************************
**********************

function InGroup(sGroup)
on error resume next
'Checking to see if user is in " & sGroup & " group")

set oDomGrp = GetObject("WinNT://" & sNTDomain & "/" & sGroup)

InGroup = false

if oDomGrp.isMember("WinNT://" & sNTDomain & "/" & sUserName) then
InGroup = true
else
InGroup = false
end if
end function
