drive mapping


Somone explain drive mappings to me please.

we're mainly a netware environment and I have a windows server that I
need to map a drive to. If I use the command netuse s: \\share\data in
the login script it never maps. I can see it and I can manually map
it, why won't this work from the novell login script?

Re: drive mapping

It should be NET USE, not NETUSE. Post the exact commands you are trying
to use please.

Re: drive mapping

If it's in the login script, it DOES need either a # or an @ to indicate
to the processor that it's an external command.

Re: drive mapping

That looks OK; from your previous post it used to work OK and now it
doesn't? What if you do it in a dos box after startup (without the #),
does that work OK? If not, you don't have the NET.exe available to you.

Re: drive mapping


ok now it's coming up w/ a dos login box when the login script runs
asking for login credential. I assume I need to specify a
user/password....how do i put that in the script as well?

Re: drive mapping

for example to map the P: drive in a netware login script:

#net use P: \servershare password /user:username

Re: drive mapping

it looks like the site misinterpreted my backslashes, it should be:

#net use P: [backslash][backslash]server[backslash]share password
/user:username
