    login script: F:\ & G:\ Drive Mappings


    Howdy,

    i have a question about some unwanted Drive mappings.
    Client is running 1 Netware 6.5.3 server.

    They are in the process of moving their workstations from Windows2000 to
    WindowsXP.

    Here is the Situtaion:
    Currently, When a user logs in on their Windows2000 workstations, they get
    a H:\ drive, S:\ drive, and a W:\ drive.
    This is how its been for 4+ years now.
    Works great.

    But, when that same user logs in from a WinXP workstation, they get the 3
    drives (H:, S:, W:) but they Also get a F:\ & G:\ drive.
    F:\ maps to the TRYFS01:\SYS (volume)
    and
    G:\ maps to the TRYFS01:\VOL1 (volume).

    Where is this F: & G: drivemapping coming from?
    (I get these mappings as an Admin, but i do not want the regular users
    having these mappings.)

    No settings were changed on the server. The Context is the same on the XP
    workstations,etc.
    So i really dont know why this is happening.
    I was thinking about adding that "NO_DEFAULT" setting into the container
    where the users are....

    But before i do anything crazy, i figured i better ask for some help! = ]

    So, does this problem sound familar with anyone else?

    Thank you again!

    The default logi n script could be causing the mping to the sys volume,
    but definitely not to the VOL1. Can you post the login script?

    Just a thought - could there be a login script assigned to an OU
    further up the tree ? - We used to update Sophos AV (Win98 days) in a
    script assigned to a top level OU.

    Maybe its getting from there.

    Login scripts are not "cumlitative", if that's what you're suggesting?

    Hummm. Mine seem to be.

    I've certain drive mappings set on some of my user accounts, then a
    script assigned to the OU (that the users are in) and finally one
    assigned to the top level OU.
    They all work fine......

    You probably have 'include' line in the lower level scripts

    Cheers Dave

    Re: login script


    Well,
    Upon further review.

    i discovered that the login script was about 20 lines long!!
    It had all kinds of IF's and THEN's (i was quite impressed).

    in there, i found that the F:\ & G:\ drive were both explicitly mapped
    depending on which group the user belongs to.

    So, i modified teh logic, and now it behaves nicely on the XP workstations.

    Of course, it doesnt explain why it maps diffreently depending if its
    Windows2000 or WinXP...

    but we'll deal with it!!

    thank you all
