We are running a Win NT4.0 server and are replacing it with a W2K Server. I want to move users personal folders and mapped drive to the new server. How can I do this without having to unshare on the NT4 server and resharing on the W2K Server manually?

This all should be done in the login script.
All you need to do is transfer the files, and then change the login script.
Shut down the old server.
Anyone who complains will be given the proper path to the new server.
No one should be using mapped drives that are not done in the login script.

I hope this helps !

Here is what I want, I am moving user folders from one server to another and I dont want to go to each machine and remap the drive. ex: \\oldserver\userfolder to \\newserver\userfolder.  I have users that have multiple mapping to the oldserver and I want to move those over to the newserver. ex: Shaw has multiple mapped drives (Forms on Oldserver F:), (Docs on Oldserver G:) and I am moving that folder to newserver so it will be (Forms on Newserver F:), (Docs on Newserver G:), I have 100 shared folders each with different permission and security rights and I want all that to travel to the newserver and all the users to have the mapping to the new server.
