*Cybrary Bonus: How to Map a Network Drive to be Used by a Service Account in Windows by @itsimeon

The simple and easy solution for mapping network drives as a service account.

How it works:

For this first step, you will need SysinternalsSuite by Mark Russinovich. You won’t need Sysinternals if you understand how this works.

1: Open an Administrator Command Prompt

2: Elevate to root using PSExec.exe:
Navigate to the folder containing SysinternalsSuite and execute the following command psexec -i -s cmd.exe you are now inside of a prompt that is nt authoritysystem
The -i is needed because drive mappings need to interact with the user.

3: Create the persistent mapped drive as the SYSTEM account with the following command net use z: \servernamesharedfolder /persistent:yes


Now, let’s make a script to repeat those steps during startup.

Create a .bat file with this as the contents. Be sure to edit it to your needs.

net use z: \servernamesharedfolder /persistent:yes

Now create a task in the Task Scheduler

Windows + R, Taskschd.msc, Enter

Schedule a new task to run the bat file at startup. Name it whatever you want.
Be sure to run with highest privileges and make sure to switch the user to the System user.
