My windows server guy created a mountpoint drive for me, such as drive letter E for my SQL Server database files. I can use Disk Management in Computer Management from Administrative Tools to map a standard directory, such as D:\SQL\data\ServerName\MP1, to the mountpoint letter E. I can do it manually without problems. I am wondering if there is a windows script way to do it in a script, so that I do not have to do it manually using Disk Management's GUI.

Any suggestion is really appreciated.

Your best bet is probably net use. It allows mounting shared locations to the specified drive letters, amongst other things.

You can right click "My Computer" and select "map network drive" from the context menu. This will bring up a dialog box that will allow you to assign the drive letter and path. You can type in the path or browse for it. There are also a checkboxes that allow you to automatically reconnect at logon, as well as save your credentials.
