I created a file "abc.bat" to be use as login scrip for network printer and map drive. I copied this file to "sysvol\sysvol\domain.com\script\abc.bat" and under user profile --> Login script typed abc.bat but it is not mapping the drive and not capturing the printer port.

Login script

net use I:\\computername\Account

net us LPT1 \\computernam\10.10.30.26

Can someone help me to find how can I

Map a network drive

Capture a network printer

Thanks

Here is an example of a simple VBS logon script. Copy & paste the content, modify it ater your needs, save it as vbs file (filename.vbs), place it under the same folder where your current script is. Don't forget to change the logon script name on the user properties. This script maps user home folder under drive P, should you map user home folder under user properties within AD Users and Computers, remove it either from there or from the script as it will try to overlap the action.

' VBScript.
' Mapping user home folder on the server
Dim oNet, sUser

Set oNet = CreateObject("Wscript.Network")

sUser =oNet.UserName

oNet.MapNetworkDrive "P:", "\\SUN\" & sUser

'Mapping Network Attached Drives
Dim WshNetwork
Set WshNetwork = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Network")
WshNetwork.MapNetworkDrive "M:", "\\sun\CMT"
WshNetwork.MapNetworkDrive "Q:", "\\sun\Public Folder"
WshNetwork.MapNetworkDrive "R:", "\\venus\IT"
WshNetwork.MapNetworkDrive "S:", "\\sun\Share"
WshNetwork.MapNetworkDrive "W:", "\\sun\Course"
WshNetwork.MapNetworkDrive "X:", "\\EARTH\XALWIN"
WshNetwork.MapNetworkDrive "Z:", "\\sun\CopyScan"


'Mapping Network Attached Printers
Dim net
Set net = CreateObject("WScript.Network")
net.AddWindowsPrinterConnection "\\sun\HPLJ2100", "HPLJ2100"
net.AddWindowsPrinterConnection "\\sun\DELLM5200", "DELLM5200"
net.AddWindowsPrinterConnection "\\sun\DELLM5300", "DELLM5300"
net.AddWindowsPrinterConnection "\\SUN\ScienceCopy", "ScienceCopy"
net.AddWindowsPrinterConnection "\\SUN\EducationCopy", "EducationCopy"
net.AddWindowsPrinterConnection "\\SUN\HouseCopy", "HouseCopy"

'Selecting default printer
Set net = CreateObject("WScript.Network")
net.SetDefaultPrinter "\\sun\DELLM5300"

I see no reason for capturing LPT1 unless you have specific program that can print ONLY on LPT1. When you use net.AddWindowsPrinterConnection you add netowk printer connection, and net.SetDefaultPrinter sets default printer. As far as I can remember, there are very few programs (DOS based) that require LTP port to print.

As per your last question, I think you should remove /persistent:yes from your statement
