Windows Server 2008 VBS login script


We have a VBS login script but I just want un specific user to map different drive.

Like if the username = "JSMITH" then goto then end of the script and run something else.

is it possible?

It's very easy in vbscript.  Are you grabbing groups/usernames already?  If so, just make sure objNetwork below is the Network object you've defined to save on redundant code.  

Modifying a script from

' MNDUserName.vbs
' VBScript to map a network drive to the UserName.

Option Explicit
Dim objNetwork 

' Purpose of script to create a network object. (objNetwork)
' Then to apply the MapNetworkDrive method. Result J: drive
Set objNetwork = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Network") 
' Here is where we extract the UserName
strUserName = objNetwork.UserName 
if (strUsername = "jsmith") then
<jsmith's commands>
<rest of login script>
end if


' End of MapNetworkDrive Example logon script.

You could also call another vbscript in the jsmith area and then wscript.quit also.
Dim objShell
Set objShell = Wscript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")

objShell.Run "TestScript.vbs" 

' Using Set is mandatory
Set objShell = Nothing

I was going to suggest trying this... just add it into the middle of your login script and change the required values in <>

'start script

On Error Resume Next

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

'find user name

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

' if user then map network drive

Select Case strUserName
objNetwork.MapNetworkDrive "<DRIVE LETTER>:", "<NETWORK PATH>"

End Select

'end script
