I’m trying to map a file share to a service account I created with a Powershell script. I created a scheduled task to run a batch file on start up on the SYSTEM account, but the file share is not accessible when I log in as the service account. When I switch the scheduled task to Run Only When User is Logged On and execute the task manually, the network map is created. If I run the batch file as the user I just created, the file share is mapped successfully. Is there anything else I can try?
