Some example login scripts

server2003A feature of a Windows network is the ability to setup scratch drives and printers for users, via a login script.  Here are some example scripts that might work for you, with a bit of modification.


Allocate a share

  1. Go to C:\WINDOWS\sysvol\sysvol\yourDomain.local\scripts
  2. Create a new document called Students.bat and edit it as follows...

    net use s: /d

net use s: \\YourServer\Students$

In Active Directory, go to the Profile tab for a student's user account properties and enter Student.bat for the Logon script (note that this is case-sensitive).

 

Allocate a printer

  1. Go to C:\WINDOWS\sysvol\sysvol\yourDomain.local\scripts.
  2. Create a new document called Print.vbs and edit it as follows...

 

Go to C:\W

' ******************  Header

Option Explicit

Dim wshNet

Dim oNetwork, sPrintPath

Set wshNet = CreateObject("WScript.Network")

Set oNetwork = CreateObject("WScript.Network")

Select Case oNetwork.ComputerName

 

' ******************  What to do for each computer in the Classroom

Case "Classroom-01"

sPrintPath = "\\PRINTSERVER\Classroom-A4"

oNetwork.AddWindowsPrinterConnection sPrintPath

oNetwork.SetDefaultPrinter sPrintPath

' ******************  The end of this script

End Select

 

Note that this script will allocate the shared printer called Classroom-A4 to the computer called Classroom-01.  Again you'll need to use Active Directory, and go to the Profile tab for a student's user account properties and enter Print.vbs for the logon script.
