Logon Script Error - Drive Mapping

By 947 ·

First time i've tried creating a vbscript and also my first post. Trying to create a script that will automatically log our thinclient users on to a network drive\folder when they login to windwos. I think I got it written correctly and I've put into the startup folder, but I am receiving the following message whenever it tries to start... "There is no file extension in "C:\Documents". Any ideas?

here's the vbs
set Net = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Network")
Net.MapNetworkDrive "X:", "\\server\file location", False, "domain\employee", "password"

I don't know what the False part is for , but shoulldn't the user be granted access based on the credentials already provided at logon?

In my logon scripts I map drive to shares based on Security Group memberships.

The Security Group is assigned access rights in the shares ACL. Then, if the user is a member of the group, the logon script maps the drive letter to the appropriate share and access is granted based on the user being a member of the security group.
