If you make sure the loginnames and password as the same on both domains. 

Then its just. 

net use k: \\FQDN\SHARE /user:DOM1\%username% 
net use l: \\FQDN\SHARE /user:DOM2\%username% 

At least that is what i do here. 
You can do more, open CMD box, run type: set 
You an use all these variables.

net use m: \\FQDN\SHARE /user:%USERDOMAIN%\%username% 
net use n: \\FQDN\SHARE /user:%username%@%USERDNSDOMAIN%

And i've disabled password changes for the time until im able to remove that old domain. 

You can set it with the persistance but i had more problem with that then above. 
If a password changes occurs, then the drive with persistant connections is failing. 

And why VB script, you can set it in you GPO also.
