Hi Experts,

Looking for a script of sorts to map a network drive to site specific storage.

Information:
1 AD domain
3x Sites
2-3 Windows Server per site
1 admin account used to logon to all servers
3x External storage devices per site

What needs to happen in script;
When the admin account logs on to a server that is located in site two the logon script needs to map drive letter H: to that specific site storage.
Same for the rest of the sites.

Was thinking of using a text file with host names but not sure how to link the specific sites.
efspdc = site 2 = edf-syn
hostname = site = storage

Thank You in advance.

I'd use a batch script i.e.

If %COMPUTERNAME% == Site1 net use H: /del /y & net use H: \\SERVER1\Share
If %COMPUTERNAME% == Site2 net use H: /del /y & net use H: \\SERVER2\Share
If %COMPUTERNAME% == Site3 net use H: /del /y & net use H: \\SERVER3\Share

How about using Group Policy Preference and then set the WMI filter ?

Either method provided should work, it's just a matter of whether you prefer Group Policy or batch files. Batch files are simpler and generally more predictable.
