On professional OS client from WinNT and newer, if you login both to NW
and MS (NT Domain or Active Direcory) you can "NET USE" MS shares in
login script.

If shares are on servers of Domain/AD you logged in when your client
execute login script use MS credentials for NET USE command, because MS
credentials are tested before executing login script.

Re: Login Scripts and UNC Paths

I noticed your post and wanted to pass on what we do to map a MS2K Server drive. We use the following command line in a user's login script:

@Net Use n: \\SERVERIP\DirectoryName UsersPassword

The command line contains the password for the user and assumes that an account has been configured on the MS2K server using the user's exact name as defined in NW.
