Hi Experts,
I have to map the cloud server using WebDAV so that users can use the mapped drive.
My problem is that when I use a regular logon scripts, the user name and password screen pops up.
If I use /user:domain\%username% parameter the end, then only password is required
Can I automate this process using a PowerShell so that nobody has to put the username and password?
If you have sample of this, that would be nice.
Thanks in advance

You can put the password after the user name and that will work. I use this on my own very secure machine.

This runs from AD servers so I cannot put a specific password. and I also don't want to hardcode the password anywhere.

I don't think powershell can help then. You would need to create some sort of program.

Yes, with a regular script as noted.

I also don't want to hardcode the password anywhere.

180 degrees contradicts the first objective. Complete oxymoron.

If you do not wish to hard code the password (good idea), then it must prompt.

The workaround suggested above WILL work. If you do not want to hard code things then you must live with a prompt. So I do not think you can say "No Answer"
