Login Script with Logic - Map Network Drives

We are currently looking for a way to tie a standard login script to a user account with some logic built in. For example, depending on the host name of the machine that the account is logging into, we would like different network drives mapped. However, we would like to leverage one central log in script for this.

Any ideas as to how to accomplish this?

Use GPO Preferencess.

You have the possibility setting up a lot of conditions, when and how the drive Will be mapped.

Thanks. Just to clarify, we would want to add conditional logic. For example:

IF hostname = DEV-XXX
Then map Drive A
OR
IF hostname = Prod-XXX
Then map Drive B

I'm not sure how I can do this with GPO without having to create separate policies, which we would like to avoid.

Are the computers in different OU?

You could run a powershell script to add computers with DEV-XXX to one group and Prod-XXX to another and then create 2 GPO Preferences (map network drive) targeting security group.
