logon script command - try again

By FatUncleAL ·
Hi, let me try this again.

What is the command for logon script to map to user's home folder so it will not see other user's folder ? This is for win98 machine to logon to NT network. I have " net use h: \\server\users " in the logon scripts now.The "users" folder is a shared folder that house all the user's home folders. But when user logon and go to my computer,Users/H:,they see all the user folders. I want to be able to map so when they go to my computer, they see their own folder only. I have connected the users to their home folder in User Manager for Domain, User Environment Profile, connect "H:" to \\server\users\%username%
I tried to use the same "%username%" after the net use command :- net use H: /HOME >nul or
- net use H: \\server\users\%username%
in the logon script, it'll only map it to the users folder but not to the user's own folder. Please help. Thanks.

Hi,

Two possible solutions...

1. You will need to create individual shares for each user's folder if you want to map directly to it...

ie.

share : fred$ -> path : \\server\users\fred
share : bill$ -> path : \\server\users\bill
share : brad$ -> path : \\server\users\brad
etc.

Use the $ sign at the end of the shares to make them hidden.

2. Set permissions up on all the user's folders (and subfolders) such that there is specifically NO access for users other than the user doing the mapping.

eg.

fred : full control : bill,brad : No access
bill : full control : fred,brad : No access
brad : full control : fred,bill : No access

Of course this option gets very tedious very quickly... And you cant say fred:fullcontrol everyone:noaccess because the no access overrules fred's access and he gets none...

Go with the first solution...

Cheers,
Tim.
