Login Scripts

By Super_IT_Mom ·
I am setting up login scripts for the different OU's I have set up on my W2K SBS. My question is this: I want to map drives but I do not want to use drive letters. I want to use the UNC path. Can this be done with a login script, and if so, how is the entry shown? I know it usually looks like, net use N: \\servername\sharename. I want my W2K clients to connect to the UNC, not the drive letter. Thank you.

Yes and no, to answer your question.
Yes, you can just put NET USE \\SERVER1\SHARE in your logon scripts, and it would make that connection on your user machines.
The problem is that this connection will NOT show up in My Computer, Windows Explorer, or My Network Places!
Using a Net Use like this basically only builds a connection to the remote machine that only AUTHENTICATES to the machine. It does not make a connection that you can drag/drop files from in a GUI.

Here is what I suggest. Either teach your users how to use the Start -> Run option and have them type in the \\SERVER1\SHARE
Doing that will open up a window that connects to that shared folder. Then they can get/move files around and such.

Now after that, on the Win2kclients, it MIGHT make an entry in My Network Places that points to the share. They could then use that. Or you can just have the users make the connections in My Network Places manually, using the Add Network Place wizard.

But you can't do what you want to do in the logon script.

hope this helps
