Good morning! I'd like to drive the car without inventing the wheel. What I mean is... I would like to add a script to my Active Directory without having to learn the ins and outs of scripting. My hope is that there
is some kind of easy to use application or maybe someone can give me some "dummy-fied" directions because quite honestly, I don't know a whole lot about Active Directory scripting. Here is what I want:
When a user logs on, and they are a member of the Finance department security group on our network... I want them to have the "F:" drive which is mapped to \\CGFS1\Finance. This group would not only give them the F: drive but it would also give them permissions
to read/write within \\CGFS1\Finance. The folder permission part, not a problem. I get that part done fine. But, I don't know how to do the "F:" drive scripting part. I found a website that appears to instruct me on how to do it yet it's very confussing and
it seems like I need a TON of prior knowledge to figure it out.
Here is that website.
I appreciate you taking the time to read this and any help is very cool!! Thanks much!!

You can do this easily with a dos command.
net use F: \\CGFS1\Finance

Sure, true. I'd like to take that a step further. I'd like to simply add people to security groups and have them get mapped when they log in based on the membership to those groups. Thanks though!

...and thus begins.... learning to invent the wheel...

Actually, it's very easy. Group policies are designed in a way that you will have to do little or no scripting. It is GUI driven.

Okay thanks! I'll go through the document. I see it's only 33 pages and hopefully it will get me to where I need to be. Thanks.
