How do I setup drive remapping so that my clients cannot access the server

You can use NT security as you normally would outside of the WDK to prevent
access to server files. The Administrator's Guide and the Release Notes
explain how to remap client or server drive names in order to support client
drive access. The release notes can be found in the directory where you
installed the WDK, and the file is README.TXT. I have extracted information
below. You choose the alternative you want to use when you install the WDK

I am running the Vista Client and Netware 6.5 SP6 servers. When I login to
the system, it takes a minute or so to process the login script. Then, each
time I open My Computer or try and save a file from Office 2007 or any other
program, it takes a minute or so to list out all of the drives. I have
disabled indexing on the Vista machine.
Does anyone have any thoughts on how to fix this? Does anyone else have this
issue going on?

Hopefully this isn't too long and boring....
We have a Netware 5.1 server as our main server and a Windows 2003 server
as an application server.
The application on the 2003 server, is occasionally updated and when
users log into the application from their WinXP PC, any newer version of
the application is installed to the PC.
To automate the authentication process, we would like to map a drive in
the login script and login as a 2003 user that has rights to the correct
folder on the 2003 server.
We have tried the "net use" command as follows:

I'm troubleshooting an issue that just popped up with a server change.
There's a client (only 1 that I know of) that's having problems with
access times to Novell mapped drives.
The user logs into his system and the login script runs. 2 drives are
mapped through the script and 5 netware drives are reconnected at
login. After logging in, he can go to one of his mapped drives (S:) and
double click on it. The window opens, but it takes about 45 seconds to
a minute before any content is displayed. Upon getting access to the

Hi, I installed the latest Novell Client on a Windows 2003 Server and
whenever the server is restarted I get a popup stating that "At least one

A look at the event viewer shows no errors except for an information note
regarding the application popup stating that a service or driver failed
during system startup.
Any thoughts on what might not be starting?

A Windows 7 PC with Client 2 takes a user's login credentials and
authenticates them to the tree, but doesn't accomplish the drive
mappings that are called in the login script. When I show the Netware

we open up "My Computer" she doesn't have her drives mapped that should
come from the server.
Then, while logged in as her, I right-clicked on the red-N, and

I have several windows 2003 servers on which I've installed the Novell

If the RDP application is closed without logging out and an immediate
reconnect is made, the connection is immediate. If, however, a connection is
tried ten minutes or more later the reconnection can take up to 90 mins
again. This is becoming frustrating. It appears that if I remove the novell
