Mapping shared folder

Dear Experts,

I am trying to map a shared folder for some domain users. Already they some shared folders mapped . I tried mapping by using the below link .its not getting mapped. through GP. Don't know why its not getting mapped. If i got to the user computer & use the command :-net use g: \\domain name\share name /persisten:yes  it says network not found with error 53. But if i type from the run in user computer \\domain\shared folder it opens up.  even the logon script is also not working.

Please help.

Does the domain name\share name have any spaces in it? If so encapsulate it with quotation marks - the command reads a space as the end of the command so if you have \\server\my files the device looks for \\server\my . Adding it as "\\server\my files" allows it to be read properly.


net use g: "\\domain name\share name" /persistent:yes

Hi ,

The share file name  has space. may be it is due to that. I will remove the space & check.

Will keep you updated.
