If you have access to use the Wizard in Explorer you can do the following.
Click Tools->Map Network Drive which launches this wizard.
Type in your info and be on your way.
If for some reason you don’t have access to the wizard due to a group or security policy it can be done from the command console. Type the following…
NET USE f: \dfpfinance /persistent:yes
NET USE g: \bbcshares /persistent:yes

err… just to confirm that this can be done on the server end and client drive mapping is strictly the same as given on the server :?March 23, 2004 at 10:35 pm #215033origin05 wrote:err… just to confirm that this can be done on the server end and client drive mapping is strictly the same as given on the server :?
Yes mapping a drive is done the same way in either OS.
If you want the drives to map automatically for a user as they authenticate into a domain that’s different. To do that you’ll need to use a logon script.March 24, 2004 at 8:12 pm #217012
thanks for your reply. but can you advise on the logon scripts which you’ve mentioned? my purpose is just to standardize the drives letters used for my users. There’s just too much different alphabets pointing to the same shared drives. Just wants to use 1 drive letter strictly for that particular shared drive. Hope you can help.March 25, 2004 at 11:05 am #215037
Logon scripts are off topic for this forum. I suggest posting that question in the scripts forum. If you look there’s probably already one there that can answer that question.

simple simple batch file that almost anyone with a double digit IQ can understand is…
Make a file called logon.bat (or whatever you want, just remember it)
in that .bat file let it look something like this
ECHO DO NOT CLOSE THIS WINDOW!!!
ECHO It will close when your logon script is complete.
NET USE E: /DELETE /Y
NET USE E: \%computername%%share%
Save this .bat file in the netlogon share.
In short everytime the user logs on it deletes the drive and re-creates it.
Now, open up Active Directory Users and Computers.
Find the user that you want to asign the logon script for.
Open up the properties for that user. Find the Profile TAB and under the logon script text box enter logon.bat (or what ever you called it)
If I skipped something let me know. Like I said this is beyond easy and defiantly NOT the most efficient way, but it will work.
