Mapping a network drive
 
How do I check to see if a specific drive/path is mapped?

Also, if it isn't mapped, I would like to map it using a specific ID and password that are each stored in their own macro. Is this possible through a built-in action or will this need to be done in a script?

List the mapped drives with the Map Drive action, then add another Map Drive step following that to map the drive, with a conditional build rule to build only if %LASTSTEP_OUTPUT% does not contain the path to map.

You can specify the username/password in the Map Drive action.

Is it possible to use a macro as the password? I'd rather ask for the password to be entered rather than store it in Visual Build.

Thanks!

Yes, you can use a macro for the password. If the macro is not defined, the user will be prompted for the value when the step builds.
