the syntax is incorrect

what you currently have commented out

;DriveMapAdd("l:", "\\bigdrive\& $username" , 1, " $username" , " $password")

try this

DriveMapAdd("l:", "\\bigdrive\" & $username , 1, "domain name\" & $username , $password)

i believe you also need the domain name with the username
