Can you give more details on what you're trying to do?

Sure!

Currently, I'm mapping the drives in the worker from the configuration utility. So  I have O and N mapped to some UNC paths. I was wondering if I could override those from within the qbwrk.conf - so I don't have to log into each box individually to do that.

I've looked at the automount option - but I didn't see a way to making it automount only certain drives....might have just missed it.

Thanks.

You should be able to copy the windows_drive_map configuration entry from the Worker qb.conf into the appropriate configuration in your qbwrk.conf. Consult the Administration manual for more information on setting up qbwrk.conf.

Hi Eric,

The only line(s) I found in the qb.conf that seems like it's related to drive mapping is:

client_drive_map = {N:|\\lamnas001\psyoplam\prod
O:|\\lamnas002\psyoplam\prod
}

Could I just use this?

You need to add to your qbwrk.conf an option called worker_drive_map, but using the same format as the client_drive_map.
