Creating Login Script

How and where do I create a login script for all my users on windows 2000 server. The workstations are windows 2000. I need them to map to a netowrk drive to access an application.

1. Open notepad and type

net use x: \\computer\share

where x is the drive letter you want to use and point it to the share. This will map the drive. Save the file as logon.bat or something logical, save it to the netlogon share of your DCs

2. Specify which accounts you want to run this script. Each account's Profile tab has a line for Logon script. Simply type the name of your script there, no need to use the \\DC\netlogon part, just logon.bat

Something to add.
Your server is 2000, as are your workstations? Then, if you are running in Native mode, with Active Directory enabled, you have to put the logon script files (filename.BAT) in the SYSVOL share on the domain controller.

Technet Article I Q229679 talks about the SYSVOL share, where your scripts should go. With Active Directory, the Netlogon folder is not used.

Here is the URL for the article:

Hope this helps.
