Mapping of drives on Netware servers on Windows clients.

This may or may not be obvious. But I was curious if there's any other way to MAP drives on Netware servers on Windows 2000 and/or XP clients besides the normal MAP commands via login script? This has been used since DAY 1 I would believe... are there any other ways. I'm assuming ZENWORKS could do it, but looking for a more global option in lieu of the LOGIN SCRIPT.

    Thanks..this is still essentially a MAP command... via login script. I'm trying to get away from 'map' commands and see if there's a way to avoid using the login script.

    I dont believe there is any other way to give users a drive mapping without using some type of script. The only other idea I can think of is pushing down shortcuts with unc paths. that way they only access the drives when they need to. you can also create network shortcut paths using unc paths. Please let me know if you can find another work around

    Since you are looking for a "global" solution it might not interest you that the end user - after basic logon to NetWare - will be able to use Windows Explorer in different ways to create ad hoc or permanent drives on NetWare servers on an individual basis (as long as there are drive letters available). I use this when I need to access a NetWare server from a Windows server and do not wish to run the NetWare default logon script (which you can opt out). Why is the MAP command unavailable/not wanted in your case?

    Not sure if I follow your logic...but even when using the normal MAP command via login script, users are able to create directories whereever they have the correct rights to do so. ??? The MAP command is available and working fine..I was just curious if there was a newer 'updated' way of doing it, that's all. The question popped up when a co-worker and I were just chatting about the normal day to day stuff..Zenworks, SMS, SUS/WUS, and the question of still having to have a login script came up...I guess it came from the fact that some users, even today in 2005, are still baffled by errors or non errors that come up in the login script.. :)
