Persistent Drive Mapping Without Usr Logon

Posted on 2014-08-06

Last Modified: 2014-08-11

I have a Windows Server 2008 server that runs an application that requires a NAS drive mapping to be persistent upon startup.  In order words, the drive mapping to a certain letter needs to be present at all times, whether a user is logged in or not.  I tried using Group Policy to run a startup script which creates the drive mapping, but was unsuccessful.  Any thoughts?  Thank you.

Not a great solution, but you could set the server to auto log in on startup with a basic user account to initiate the mapping.

You could set server to auto logon then have a logon script that maps drive then locks computer.
