Net share scripting

By zero ·
I can create a net share on my servers and clients running winnt/2kpro, however I have a few clients that are running win9x and I would like to have their work directory on their PCs shared to the server via net share. Rather than have my PC supportteam run around to each PC, I was hoping that there was a way to do this via a logon script.
The command in NT/2000 is "net share". I cannot find one that is similar within Win9x.

Any help would be appreaciated.

Net share scripting

The NET commands are the same in the various versions of windows. But would it not be simpler to create working folders on a server then map these out to each user using the profile setting in User Manager? or have I misunderstood the question?

I have all users save their work on the server via net shares, however, we have users that are mobile and need to save work on their PCs when they are not in the office. Rather than have the user dump all work from their PC to the server, our ITdepartment was toying with the idea of "auto-share". This would cause a DIR on a users PC to be automatically shared once they are logged onto the network. Than each day they are in the office at lunch their PC is backed up via the server.

We dothis now with our NT and Win2k pro clients, however, the Win9x clients threw us for a loop.

In response to the comment about all versions of Windows having the same net commands, I couldn;t find any comment about "net share" or something similaron a Win9x box. I have found info on starting services and things of that sort, but not on setting a share via the command line.

Thanks again for replying.

the command line methode for drive mapping is:
net use [drive:] [\\server\share [password]]
eg.
net use f: \\myserver\netlogon
net use g: \\myserver\data letmein

hope that was what you were looking for

Paradox42 is correct. Just remeber that if you have PDC & BDC that they are replicating your netlogon share. Other you will get some hit and miss behavior if the file does not exsist on both your PDC and BDC.

If you arent using a BDC, then .. you should be =)

Good Luck!
