Windows 7: How to map drives

How to map drives

I am on a domain. I have a host and all vm's are on vsphere. I created a file server on 2008R2 and installed the file services role. Created a data drive and assigned it a letter. What steps do I need to take in order to have this drive automatically appear on each domain user's pc when they login? I have no experience with sccripts and thought that there could be another way, or if both ways can be explained that'd be awesome too!




Thanks!

Use Group Policy logon scripts - https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/.../dd630947.aspx.

The script would be "net use" - https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/.../bb490717.aspx

Just an example:
Code:
net use Z: \\ComputerName\ShareName /persistent:yes
