VB script Map Hidden A:

By Luc Geurts ·
We have all drives hidden by a Windows 2000 policy. It is called resricted users. They can't use a, b, c, d or e. Now some users are asking for the a: drive (floppy). Instead of creating a new policy I was thinking of creating a security group called locala. In the VB logonscript i made a mapping to floppy$ for the secgroup. Only when the script runs it doesn't map the A:. A: was shared as floppy$ on the user machine under an administrative account) How do i map the hidden A: with sharename floppy$ for a user who belongs to the locala securitygroup?

You can't map anything to a drive letter that is already assigned to a resource that is present physically on the machine. Even though the drive is hidden, the drive letter is already assigned, so you can't map it. You should be able to map it to another drive letter, though. Have you tried this? The user would have to have administrative rights to the local workstation, too, since this is a share that is only available to administrative-level users. Hope this helps!

We succeeded in making a mapping to the hidden A: with a vb script.
