net use networked printers

I need to use a batch file so our networked users can connect to network printers.  They are currently mapped to network printers and I need to disconnect them from this particular server and reattach them to these same printers that located on a different server.

Why don't you use something like mine....

net use f: /delete
net use f: "\\server\my documents"

net use y: /delete
net use y: \\server\zip

net use g: /delete
net use g: "\\mitchell\utilities"

net use lpt3 /delete
net use lpt3 \\server\canon

REM note double quotes for long share names

Try using a VBScript...

set net = CreateObject("Wscript.network")
use addwindowprinterconnection
and removeprinterconnection
and enumprinterconnection method (do a quick search on these key word and you'll find an exemple easily)

thanks!

Here is the commands I have in my batch file to do exactly what you are asking for. I downloaded a program from the Zero Administration Kit called Con2Prt.exe.

con2prt.exe /f    'removes all printer connections
con2prt.exe /cd \\domain\sharename   'connects to printer and makes it default.
con2prt.exe /c \\domain\sharename 'just connects to printer.

I use this batch file to connect the computers in my network to multiple shared printers.  Just set the "d" parameter after the printer you want to default to.
