    Mapping problem

    Locked

    by james.yu ·

    My dc is running on windows 2000 server with Active Directory. I mapped a network drive for some users in their profile usina Active Users and Computers, i found out windows 95 & 98 clients can not see the mapped drive when they log on. I tried to pur a logon script on the user profile but it does not work. maybe because i put the script on the wrong place, because i can’t find Repl directory on my system partition. Can someone show me how to implement this so that windows 95 & 98 clients also can see the mapped drive on their workstation?

      Hi,
      The issue of 95 and 98 clients on a win2k domain can get a bit confusing. Although it is possible to install the Active Directory services client on your 9X machines(available on the 2000 server CD), there is currently no way that they can use the standard group policy functionality (and probably never will be able to). When you add a logon \ logoff script to a gpo object, that script is stored specifically with that GPO, rather than in a collective script area as was the case with NT4. Consequently, your script will not be run by 9X clients. There is, however, still a netlogon share available for downstream clients !! it is now situated in WINNT\SYSVOL\sysvol\yourdomain.com\SCRIPTS
      If you drop a copy of your script in there and add the relevant entry to the 9X users profile it should run ok. Note that the sysvol share is replicated to all DC’s, so your script will be copied out just as it was with the old repl directory. Hope this helps….

        Yes, it helps!! Although not exactly the way i want it to be, i mapped to \\server\main folder\sub folder, but it only shows until \\server\main folder, but still it shows! Thanks.
