It depends on if you want to use the computername or the hostname (they are normally the same) though)

Here is a vbscript using the computername (run using cscript scriptname.vbs)

' get computer name

Set oWshShell = CreateObject( "WScript.Shell" )
Set oWshNetwork = WScript.CreateObject( "WScript.Network" )
sComputerName = oWshNetwork.ComputerName

sCmd = "net use O: \\" & Left(sComputerName,7) & "AB\folder$"

wscript.echo "Executing commandline: " & sCmd

oWshShell.run sCmd,0,True

Here is a vbscript using the hostname from registry (run using cscript scriptname.vbs)

' get hostname

Set oWshShell = CreateObject( "WScript.Shell" )
sRegValue = "HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters\Hostname"
sHostName = oWshShell.RegRead( sRegValue )

sCmd = "net use O: \\" & Left(sHostName,7) & "AB\folder$"

wscript.echo "Executing commandline: " & sCmd

oWshShell.run sCmd,0,True

Using Windows Command Script

Example.cmd

@ECHO OFF&SETLOCAL
(SET H_=)
FOR /F %%# IN ('HOSTNAME') DO (SET H_=%%#)
IF DEFINED H_ (NET USE O: \\%H_:~,7%AB\folder$)
