    Question Windows 2000 Server Question

    Hi,

    In the active directory i seem to remember that you can assign a mapped network drive to a user name. So for example when this person loggs into their machine they dont need to manually assign the network drive.

    Only thing is i cant remember how to do this...can anyone help?

    Cheers

    Darren

    That is the Home folder option their user account, on the profile tab.

    Just choose the letter and enter the path.

    I'd possibly be more tempted to use al ogin script and the %username% variable if you need to map individual shares.

    The home folder is fine.

    What i need to do is out sales team have their own drive and accounts have a another.

    What i need to do is assign the mapped network drive to each team.

    Moby how do you make a login script?

    login scripts are a pretty big topic , but essentialy you create a file and put it into the netlogon share of your domain controllers.
    you can have different sctips for different groups ,or you can have one big script that is more generic , but they can take a long time to code.

    an example command might be.

    net use t: /d /y (deleteds any previous mapping)
    net use t: \\server\accountshare\

    or you coudl try and use KIX script which is a pretty porwerfull scripting tool for logins .
