Hello Gurus

I have a windows 2003 domain and I would like to use a PS1 file to map use drives.

Here's what I have so far

# PowerShell Logon Script Example
$net = $(New-Object -ComObject WScript.Network)
$net.MapNetworkDrive("Y:", "\\BWKPW21\GDrive")
$net.MapNetworkDrive("Z:", "\\BWKPW21\RXS")

I would like to remove the drives first then mapped them like we did in the batch logon script.
Thanks for your help. Any additional input will be much appriciated

I am pretty sure the code is

$net.removenetworkdrive("y:")

this checks for the drives you listed above. if they are already mapped, it removes them.

then it maps the drives

$net = $(New-Object -ComObject WScript.Network)


if ($net.EnumNetworkDrives() | ? {$_ -eq "y:"}){
      $net.RemoveNetworkDrive("y:")
}
$net.MapNetworkDrive("Y:", "\\BWKPW21\GDrive")

if ($net.EnumNetworkDrives() | ? {$_ -eq "z:"}){
      $net.RemoveNetworkDrive("z:")
}
$net.MapNetworkDrive("Z:", "\\BWKPW21\RXS")

Open in new window

Why powershell ..?
Net use is simple

net use I: /delete
net use J: /delete
net use K: /delete
above is to delete existing drives

net use {drive letter:} \\{machine name} to map new  drives

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why
