Hi,

I'm trying to execute a DSC configuration which contains a script resource to map a network drive – this drive is a storage account in Azure.  If i execute the script block outside of DSC it maps the drive as expected,  but with the DSC execution the drive doesn't get mapped. It executes the script block, but i assume because DSC executes under a system account the drive isn;t visible.

Is there anyway i can execute the script block within DSC under the context of a local user account, or any other way i can get this drive to be persistent across accounts?

The reason i need this drive mapped, is because once the drive is mapped the dsc script then pulls a load of file/folders from this location, so maybe there is a better way to do this?

Any help would be really appreciated

Cheers

Tommy

Yes you can run DSC configuration with different user context. Please go through below documentation.
