I need a simple login bat file that can be run on users profiles on our W2K8R2 enviorment. I need to be able to map the S drive which is our Sales share to all users and as a user home directory for each user. Once the drives map they want Hello %username today is %date Have a great day! to be displayed.

I have never written a login script so I am looking for some help. I dont want to do any powershell stuff just a simple bat file that I can pop in the sysvol folder under scripts.

what's the UNC path to the share?

Just save this as share.bat on your sysvol and point to that file on the logon script on AD for the accounts you want to use this on.

You can either mount the drive through that script, or via the 'Home Drive' fields on the AD user account properties. It would be redundant to do both and will give you an error if you do both:

@ECHO OFF

net use S: \\shareserver\Sales

echo "Hello %USERNAME%, today is %DATE%. Have a great day!"

Open in new window
