Does anyone know of a way to map a drive and setting up a different label for instance:
map to j drive
name displayed in my computer/explorer Staff Shared Area?
Is this possible or am I hoping for too much here?
Why not just change what the folder is shared as, it's that which is displayed no?
It is possible to do it from VB Script as follows...
EDIT: This appears not to work on Win2K Pro.Code:dim oNet, oShell set oNet = CreateObject("Wscript.Network") set oShell = CreateObject("Shell.Application") oNet.MapNetworkDrive "J:", "\\server\share" oShell.NameSpace("J:").Self.Name = "Shared Work Area" set oShell = nothing set oNet = nothing
We only use Win XP pro so hopefully that will work I'll let you know!
I was searching for something else when I came across this. I've given my mapped drives user-friendly names now. Great! Another little niggle sorted.Originally Posted by ajbritton
I tried that last year and ran into permission problems when running in the context of a logon script. I shall have to have another go though........Originally Posted by OverWorked
I use it in a logon script and it works fine. My logon scripts are assigned via GP (not user account property).
