Have a new sbs2011 server. Want to map all clients to the new network file shares. Where do I copy the .bat file on the domain controller to delete the users current mapped drives and map the new drives? it is the domain name/sysvol folder?
Thanks

Here is a link on how to create drive mappings based on Group policy (This is your best solution for what you need)

Alternatively, you can specify a logon script to run from \\localhost\NETLOGON per user via their Profile tab in AD.

net use * /delete /y
net use x: \\SERVERNAME\SHARENAME

Group policy is the better solution, but legacy scripts can be run by doing two steps:
1. put the file you want to run in %systemroot%\sysvol\sysvol\<DNS Domain Name>\scripts folder - for example, if your domain was abc.local, the path would likely be C:\windows\sysvol\sysvol\abc.local\scripts
2. in every user's account (when using Active Directory Users and Computers, not the SBS console, under the Profile tab, enter the script name only next to Logon Script.  NOT the full path.
