Home Directory Drive Letter logon change

By rrudolph ·
Does anyone know how to change the home directory drive letter in a user's profile using a logon script. I have tried 'net use x: /home' and 'net user %username% /homedir:\\server\%username%$ /domain' (which creates a Z drive letter) both will notchange the home directory letter in the users profile. What I wish to do is change all of our external user's (125 of them) home drive letters

mapping users drives

we delete existing shares first within the scrip then reconnect them...

REM Delete existing mappings
@echo off
net use g: /delete
net use h: /delete
net use x: /delete
@echo off
REM Map drives

net use g: \\sever_name\share
net use h: \\server_name\%username%$
net use x: \\server_name\share

note the h: is for the home drive mapping,

Not quite it

by rrudolph In reply to mapping users drives

Thank You, Soulby for you answer, but simply mapping a drive letter to a directory does not change the home drive's drive letter in the user's profile. Meaning, if you go to user manager and look at user's X account. Their home directory will have a drive letter of G: (for example). How can I change that drive letter to W: using a logon script? So when I look in the users profile their home directory drive letter is now W:.
