Scripted network mounts with Windows

December 12, 2011 by Michael

I have some services and scheduled tasks that call a Batch file under windows. The scheduled tasks cannot access network drives that the assigned user has defined, but luckily there is a “mount” pendant within Windows as well.

To mount a network share within the Batch script use:

net use t: \\server\share /persistent:no

The authentication is taken from the user that is assigned to the task.

If this not enough use

net use t: \\server\share /persistent:no /user:user@domain password

To unmount the share use

net use t: /delete
