I have 20 pc's that have a network mapping to a remote share they where mapped individually at each 2000 workstation to a 2000 server and set to connect again at login.  I would like to move the share to another server.  What is the most effective way to remove the current mapping and create a new one to the share on the new server? thanks

use the following Ill call the drive W:

net use w: /delete /y > nul: 2>nul:
net use w: \\newserver\newfolder


put in the logon script or save it in notepad with a .bat extension and go round with a floppy :)

or Email the batch file to your users and tell them to run it (outlook might block it though) so zip it first
