I am asking this question with almost no knowledge of Windows and Active Directory.
I have a Windows Server (2012), that I am using as a file server (FILE01.domain.tld). There are some local groups that govern who gets access to which share. These users are in the ALPHA AD Domain.
Now, we have some desktop computers connected to the ALPHA domain, where users can login. What I would like to accomplish is if user ALPHA\colum logs into a desktop, the fileshares that the user has access to on the fileserver (the group FILE01.domain.tld\GROUP_ORG_FINANCE and the share FILE01.domain.tld\FINANCE) are mounted as network drives.
Now, I know I can try and mount each fileshare individually, but the issue here that if a new share is added down the road I have to go in and add it to the script on each computer. So, any ideas how to accomplish this? I am not opposed to running my own Active Directory, but if I did that, I would want the accounts to be the same on the AD I run and the ALPHA directory.
This is a foreign concept to me, so sorry if this is something really simple.
