Set your goals

The third part in a continuing series on scripting explains how to use tools that let you identify users and computers outside a domain structure and make them connect to network shares -- depending on who and where they are.

The first step when creating any script is to decide what the script must accomplish. Here are some goals you should...

consider:

  • Determine the name of the current user/computer.

  • Name resources for a user or computer to connect to.

  • Choose which resources the user/computer should be able to access.

  • Connect to those resources.
