Help with mapped drives - Group policy

At office we have several client workstations running with Windows Server 2003 R2. We have also applied a GPO with settings to run some VBS scripts to map network drives to drive letters for all users. Now what I am planning to do is to map a network drive to a drive letter but this will be for only 2 users, not all.

I sit possible? I guess yet. But how? Please help.

Hello Victor, you can do this by creating a new security group. Later add both of those users to this new group. Once done you can create a vb logon script to map the drives based on the security group.

Thats it There are few script generator tools as well available. You can Google for the same.

When you plan access to shared folders, determine the type of permissions to use, who needs access to the folders, and the level of access that users require. You can also disable administrative shares and hide shared folders. For more information refer to this article - http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/l...68(WS.10).aspx
