VBS Assistance

I have inherited a network that was supported by an outside firm.  They had setup a script that would check for and install if not present a software management client.  The issue is the company no longer supports our company and I have their remnant VB script that I need to modify.  Presently it pulls from a variable /g=ffs.  Where is a batch file mapping shared drives for the users.  I need to create automatically of their home drive at creation of their accounts.  I had to kill the install of the clients to clean off the access into the system.  I need some assistance in the VS Script which was set as a Login script in a GPO that is disabled.  I would like to maintain the login bat file mapping the drives as well as creation of a home drive and I have been noticing that recently the system will no longer create the home directory automatically and that on occasion the mapped drives are not getting created for new users.  I am weak in my scripting and I need help.

Hi, looking at the script, it does nothing more than install the agent.  It does not map any driver, nor set the home directory.  You are going to need to start from scratch and not use this script at all, if you don't need the agent.

For creating the home drive, you should be using the Active Directory profile tab of each user.

To map drives, you should be using Group Policy Preferences if you have a Server 2008 DC.  If not, you can use scripts to map drives based on group memberships in Active Directory.  As an example, have a look at the script I posted here some time ago:
