How to add a Network Location using PowerShell

We have decided to try and use network locations (See screenshot below) instead of drive maps where practical at my work place for a number of reasons; ensuring minimal damage by Cryptolocker and running out of letters being two of the primary ones.


I was trying to find a way of automating this in a way that will give me the greatest flexibility and naturally PowerShell once again came to the rescue.

I got most of the code from here and so cannot take credit for it – all I did was strip it of some of the validation (as I did not need this) and turn it into a function: This enables me to use it in a more versatile manner which meets my needs perfectly and I’ll be writing a new script that calls this function over the next couple of days.

You can find it on my Github here.
