Workstation fails to pick up mapped drive
We have a server running SIMS in a workgroup and have currently one PC from the curriculum network which connects to it - works fine when set up.
I have physically mapped the drive and also set the map up as a BAT file for startup but after a reboot the mapped drive fails to show and has to be physically reset again - what am I missing

What is in the batch file?
How are you launching it on start up?

at the beginning of the batch file.
Let me know how you get on, could you post a copy of the batch file?

Thanks folks. My current mapdrive.bat reads:
net use t: /d /y
net use t: \\****\simsdata /<***** >:<*****>

Shove a ping -n 5 name-of-sims-server in in front of that and log the whole lot out to a text file so you can see whether it's running before the network connection is established or whatnot.
Thanks to kmount from:

Also check the error logs to see why the map failed.

are they able to login using cached logins? if so enable wait for network at startup via gpo - you may find that they are logging in using cached settings it cannot map the drive due to the network card not being ready
