The Network object enables you to access information about your network. The following scripts demonstrate how to map a network drive. In the first step, the script creates a Network Object. Next, the MapNetworkDrive method, one of the Network object's methods, performs the mapping operation.

Arguments for MapNetworkDrive Method

  • The local drive assignment (I:, for example)

  • The Universal Naming Convention (UNC) path to the mapped remote drive

  • An optional Boolean indicating whether the drive will be persistently connected

  • An optional user name if you want to use different credentials

  • An optional password for use with the alternate user name
