Can the variables %homepath% and %username%. be used in a login script file?
I have read all about the environmental variables such as %homepath% and %username%. Can either of these variables be used in a login script (.bat) file? I have tried every possible combination. If it can be done, what is the syntax? The profiles tab in the ADS for users has the homepath as serverdiruser. Obviously I am trying to map a drive letter to serverdiruser, where each user is unique.
It all depends on what user context the batch file runs in. If the batch file is kicked off in the LOCAL_SYSTEM account, those environment variables won't be defined. However, if the batch file is started from the user's account, simply specify them like SERVER%USERNAME%.
