Win2K, Profiles and mapped drives

By geno ·
Is there anyway to do a mapped drive in Win2K so that it will be mapped in all new profiles that are created?

While there are many ways to map a drive, you may want to expand upon your question. What is your network setup? Are the profiles local or roaming? Taking a shot with this you will want to use User Manager and setup a home drive for each user.Gregory Pipkins

The WIN2K Pro machine is the member of a domain and I would like to have all domain users that logon to the machine to have the same drives mapped to the same letters.

Hi,
working on the assumption that you want this on a single machine, and that you don't want to use group policy or domain based logon scripts, and also that everyone logging on will have rights to access the shares in question then the simplest solution is this -

create a batch file containing the following for each drive, obviously altering the drive letter and sharename as appropriate. You could delete any mapped drives at the start of the script to prevent errors, but I prefer the persistent switch.

net use Z: \\server\share /persistent:no

next edit the following key

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

and add an entry for your batch file. This will cause the file to be run whenever anyone logs on. There are nicer ways to do this where multiple machines \ users are concerned (see my opening comments) but if my assumptions are correct then this will do what you require...
