shared files on win2k server

By isoro ·
I can successfully map a drive to a shared file on a win2k sever form a windows 95 station. However when i run a batch file for the same drive mapping I get a password request message.
The present pdc is an nt4. scripts are run from nt4. this does not happen with win2k work stations or win98 work stations. Any insight will be helpful. thanks

are you running the bat file from the autoexec file? If so then your user has not logged on yet so there is no user validation to the domain. I would run the bat file from the start folder with Win 95 or add network logon lines to the bat file before the mapping commands.

the batch files run from "the nt4 server (pdc) under sys32,repl,export,scripts. logon authentication is done on the nt4 server.

what kind of commands are you running in your batch file? Are you running any commands that are copying/writing/deleting data?

When you call your batch files, are you running from \\pdcserver\netlogon?

This might help us a little to try and figure out your problem...

Thanks!

I know that you are running those bat files from the \sys32\...\repl folder - just curious if you were running them from that path structure, or from \\pdcserver\netlogon...

Sorry if I wasn't clear!
