On a netware 4 network, I have a remote user that uses drive F to map to an application at the remote office. When she comes to the main office, she needs drive F to map to another application here. When she logs in at the main office, she gets her mappings from the login script at the remote office. Short of having her going into microsoft explorer and remapping the drive, what's the most efficient way to take care of this. Changing the drive letter is not an option.

If she's getting her mapping from the remote office login script even when at the main office she may be logging into the wrong context. Make sure her context is set to log her into the main office. I'm assuming her user object must exist in the remote office's container. Create an alias for her user object in the main office's container so that she can get drive f: mapped from the login script for the main office.

The IPX network address at each site is probably different, right? In her login script, check which network she's on, and map drive F: accordingly:

IF "%NETWORK_ADDRESS" = "AAAA" THEN
MAP F:=HOME_OFFICE_SERVER/SYS:
ELSE
MAP F:=REMOTE_OFFICE_SERVER/SYS:
END

Off the top of my head on syntax, but you get the idea -- look in the NWAdmin help file for the proper variable name.
