This is a .vbs script we want to use for our login script. How can you modify the code so that you can have multiple mapped drives and so that you can map folders depending on the department the user is in. Right now it will only map 1 drive, the other mappings arent working.



On Error Resume Next

'Remove ALL Mapped Drives
On error resume next 
Set WshNetwork = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Network") 
Set oDrives = WshNetwork.EnumNetworkDrives 
For i = 0 to oDrives.Count - 1 Step 2 
WshNetwork.RemoveNetworkDrive oDrives.Item(i),true,true 
Next 


Set objSysInfo = CreateObject("ADSystemInfo")
Set objNetwork = CreateObject("Wscript.Network")

strUserPath = "LDAP://" & objSysInfo.UserName
Set objUser = GetObject(strUserPath)

For Each strGroup in objUser.MemberOf
    strGroupPath = "LDAP://" & strGroup
    Set objGroup = GetObject(strGroupPath)
    strGroupName = objGroup.CN

'Map All Users To This Drive Letter
   objNetwork.MapNetworkDrive "Z:", "\\server2\a la mode\WinTOTAL"
   objNetwork.MapNetworkDrive "W:", "\\server2\a la mode\"

    Select Case strGroupName
      
        Case "Accounting" 
            objNetwork.MapNetworkDrive "Q:", "\\server2\Quickbooks"

        Case "Engineering" 
            objNetwork.MapNetworkDrive "Y:", "\\WIN-7TBJVQLALJM\Engineering"


    End Select
Next

Which drive gets mapped?

Have you investigated using Group Policy Preferences instead of a VBS script.  It's far better to use GPP than VBS scripts.

I've been using login scripts for years, but after researching group policy mappings and the fact you can target specific users/computers as well as even CPU speed to assign mappings too, this makes it far superior to VBS scripts.

Thanks for the suggestion!
