First Network Drive

This parameter defines which Windows drive letter the Novell Client will start with in response to eDirectory login script commands such as "MAP *1" and "MAP NEXT", which are expecting to utilize drive letters relative to a First Network Drive setting which may be unique to each machine where the eDirectory login script executes. The First Network Drive setting only applies to these "relative" drive mapping commands. The First Network Drive setting does not force or prevent attempts to map using an explicit drive letter reference (such as "MAP E:"), nor does the First Network Drive setting affect or prevent drive selection in the "Novell Map Network Drive" feature available in the red "N" menu.

By default, the First Network Drive parameter is set to "Automatic". This means that the Windows drive letter will be determined and selected automatically based on the local virtual and physical drives present at the time the map command is executed. Starting with drive "A:", the Novell Client will skip past any removable media, hard disk drives, optical drives and RAM disks and will select the first available Windows drive letter after these local drives. For example, if drive letters "A:" through "P:" are already assigned to local drives on the current Windows machine, having the Novell Client "First Network Drive" parameter set to "Automatic" will choose "Q:" as the effective First Network Drive letter during the map command.

For more information regarding the MAP command and syntax, see the Novell Login Script Commands and Variables documentation (http://www.novell.com/documentation/beta/linux_client/login/data/hb3rxdni.html).
