I need to create a batch file that runs on a machine and connects network drives. The machine and file server are on different domains but are trusted.

The batch file needs to ask the user for credentials then pass those credentials for authentication.

Any pointers?

set /p NETUSER=Please enter user name for connection:
If defined NETUSER net use * \\SERVER\Share /user:OTHERDOMAIN\%NETUSER% 

Open in new window


This will prompt the user for a user name and pass it to the net use command. replace SERVER, Share and OTHERDOMAIN with your values

On the other hand since there is a trust you should be able to grant the user from domain A access to ressources in domain B.
No need to prompt for username...
