Net Use and W2K3 credentials

I'm racking my brain trying to figure out how to minimize hassles when we migrate some of our data to a Windows server.

My thought is to simply change "map" commands to "net use" commands. I think that I'll be able to insert W2K3 user names into the login scrip via variable (we imported them in the eDir). However, those W2K3 user IDs are not the same as in eDir, and I'm struggling with a way to have a login w/o a second login prompt (transparent).

Any ideas?

Thanks!

Re: Net Use and W2K3 credentials


change the userids?

are the netware/edir servers going away completely? you could do the
net use commands in the login script.

if you can't change the login names, you could have a little text file
with the usernames paired up and run a bat in the login script to run a
bat to read the file and swap in the new username. actually, you could
do that bat in a pure win environment too...

The net use command would require the user to add a user name / pw. We can pass the new user ID, which is imported into the eDir tree, via variable, but we're looking at a way to do the password.

Would your batch file provide the p/w? If so, would such a batch file pass anyone's security requirements, or would we be left to convince the security people that it's okay 'cause the file is in a hidden directory, etc?

Thanks!

Re: Net Use and W2K3 credentials


nah, BAT would have to be readable and as such, anyone could read it.
you'd have to have the user's type them in during the script process.

isn't there some kind of directory service out there that lets you have
access to files and directories on multiple servers wihtout requiring
multiple username and passwords? I know I've seen this before...

😮
