Windows 98 Home Directory Mapping

By vze393zf ·
Why won't my Win98 clients map their home drive letter from the configured profile settings in Active Directory Users and Computers?? Let me see if I can answer my own question...is it because that configuration setting calls on the
%username% variable that is not present in Win9X clients?? If so....what can you do besides upgrade to 2000 or XP professional?? Any assistance would help treeee mendously.
Thanks.

Pete

Have you installed the ADclient on your 98 machines? if not then run the insyallation from the win2k server cd.

this should solve your problem!

Thank you for the suggestion...I was working with a Windows 98 machine that had the ADClient extensions installed, and that was not the fix for my problem. But thank you for rendering the assistance.

If you don't want to install the AD tool on the workstations, you can also solve this problem through a login script with the following command line in it:

net use [driveletter:] /home

Hope this helps!
