Server 2012 R2 Domain login script question

Last Modified: 2018-02-08
Hi everyone -

Is there a way in Server 2012 R2 to create a login script (most likely a VB Script, I would think) that will map network drives based on whether the user is a member of a particular security group?

For example, if I have users that are members of a domain and they should have access to specific corporate data only if they are managers or executives, can I create a share, assign the members of the "Managers" and "Executives" groups permissions to that share, and then have the login script map the necessary drive letter only if the user who's logging in is a member of one of those groups?

Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks much!  :-)
