Run department or group script from G: to map network drives

After the system reboots, you will be prompted for your MAC ID Username and Password. The first time you logon, please ensure that the domain is set to AP1. An initial logon script will run but will not link any drives until the Corner install has been completed.


You will need to set up a temporary link to the appropriate NT server. Right click on the Network Neighborhood icon and select Map Network Drive. Select the letter G and enter \\OSX\APPLSOFT$ (X=appropriate office server number) as the network path. DO NOT check the Reconnect at Logon prompt. Click OK to continue.


From the G: drive, double click on CornerNT / Mclink / cornerntw2k.EXE. Click on Next >> at the Title screen to begin installing.
