Scripting Question

%username% in a bat file

02/25/2016 638 views

So my question is with mapping a users home drive with a bat file.

If I run the command from a cmd prompt works

NET USE H: \\Servername\Home$\%username%

If I put this command in a bat file and run the bat file with a pause at the end I can see that I am getting a system error 67 network path not found.

What am I missing?

  • how are you executing the batch file?
  • Just testing currently. Logged into server as Administrator and double clicking the bat file.
  • try %%username%%
  • Thanks for the reply's. I am not sure what I did to fix other than deleting the original bat file and re-typing it. I am now mapping the specific folder on the hidden user share. This exercise was to allow a user to run this from Parallels RAS as an app and have access to their network home drive files.
