Windows NT Logon scripts - performing operations depending on user group membership

The resource kit has a program called IFMEMBER , which you can use in your login script logic. IFMEMBER works by checking for membership in a group and returning an ERRORLEVEL hence you'll have a bunch of IF THENS. Code segment section:

:its
ifmember itsgrp
if not errorlevel 1 goto hrgrp
net use u: \\server1\itsshare$

:hrgrp
ifmember hrgrp
if not errorlevel 1 goto secgrp
net use u: \\server1\secshare$
...

Unfortunately, I believe ifmember only works for NT workstations.

Microsoft has introduced the downloadable Windows script for vbscript scripting purposes.
