Hello, I am trying to make a log on script that looks to see what the username is that is loging on. and then takes that and maps their documents. for example. I log on with the user name tlufkin. Their documents would be located on my server at \\server\tlufkin. How can i get the script to do this. but change the location depending on who is logging on. A working example would be great. Thanks in advance for any help.

Folder redirection via Group Policy. It will redirect their My Documents folder to a location you choose on the server, it is a one time thing and will always be on the server. No scripting neccesary if you have Active Directory set up correctly.

This is basic network admin stuff. Look up folder redirection on Google because there is a lot more to it than simple instructions. You can also mess things up royally if you do not know what you are doing. Create a test user and a test OU in AD to start with and test out your redirection results.

You will also need to creat a share on your server for the redirection to go to. I generally create a share called redirection and give only authenticated users full access and let AD take care of the security for the new user folders created in that share.
