Net Use to Map Drive with Username & PW

By ASiedentopf ·
I know this is an old subject becuase Windows 95 does not allow the /user: in the net use command.

But I need to map a drive to a server (AS/400 thats using Netserver) that requires a different username and password than the user logon.

The traditional:
net use x: \\server\share /user:username password
Does NOT work as we all know. Has anyone found a trick to getting this done???

Thanks a lot in advance!!!

Maybe check out Kixstart login script.
I am using it and it is very robust.
I am not certain if it will handle the task you are trying but it has done everything I needed. kixstart.com

If the Netserver is a NT box, create a account on the nt, then map the drive and when prompt use the account info previously created.

I used Kixtart to handle login script on NT. Its a great utility that puts a shot of adrenaline to normal login scripting.

You can use the username /password option in kixtart scripting. Check it out.
