I am trying to map some network drives on our machines. I can map them fine, but when I log off and they log back on it prompts them for the admin password. I definetly don't want my password floating around. I even tried mapping the drive under there login name, same problem. Any solutions.

It sounds like you need to change permissions on the drive you are mapping to allowing the users to map the drive themselves.

Along the same lines as what cybertech said, but rather than allowing "the users to map the drives themselves", simply map them yourself, and add the appropriate user permissions under the drive/folder you are mapping too...e.g. on the server.

Another option would be to use login scripts at the server level. Then when somebody logs in, the script executes and the drive maps.

The syntax for this would be:

net use [drive letter] \\servername\sharename

This way you could control everybody's drive mappings from one central location instead of going around to each individual computer and mapping them manually.

They should map whether the user has permissions to access them or not. However, if they don't have permission, they'll get an "access denied" message when they click on the drive.
