Hi

I've searched the forum for guidance with this and come up blank...

Basically, our environment consiste of a number of Citrix 4.5 servers delivering desktop environments and applications. The exiting script works perfectly for our current needs, being that the clients use XP Pro as the OS to gain access to the Citrix farm.

However we are moving to an XPe thin client environment and require the ability to map USB shares (XPe in this environment maps the USB port to the TC's local C drive folder which is then shared from the thin client).

We need the ability in the script to identify the thin client, and map the share through their Citrix desktop session. In DOS, %clientname% is the variable which returns the client name.

Is there a relatively simple method to perform this through KiXtart?

Thank you in advance

I'm speaking with absolutely no idea what XPe is, however it seems maybe all you are asking is how can you map a drive in the client?

use x: "\\%clientname%\share"

If this is not what you need, can you elaborate on your environment/needs?

Thanks Allen... I didn't think it would be that easy??

XPe = XP Embedded

Assuming that the USB drive is mapped as the C: drive before the launch of any script on your Citrix enviroment..

 Code:
Use x: \\%clientname%\c$\


The use of enviromental variables is allowed within KiX, no need to reinvent the wheel when you already have it.

BTW: I believe that this is what Allen was trying to say, just wasn't elaborate enough. [poke] [poke]
