Login script - Windows 2012 Std

Hello all,

for some reason i am unable to get the login script working on users login to map shared drives. I've put the .bat file in a correct path and users have rights to the shares. I am able to map the drives manually by running the .bat file but not via the login script.

Ideally we would like to avoid using the group policy but just wanted to know if there's something we are doing wrong. It worked fine on server 2003 but not loading on 2012.

Please advice.

Many thanks,

Can you post the login file?

net use * /Delete (will delete all network drives)
net use S \\Server\Share (will map the S drive to specified location)

You can use Item Level Targeting to map the drive.
