Not mapping correct drives after password change on NT Server 4.0

Hello,

Seem to be having a problem with NT Server with service pack 6a.  After a user changes his password and then attempts to log onto the domain, a logon script maps the incorrect drives to his computer. It is mapping drives to a PDC and not the BDC in his site.  If i restart the BDC and have him restart it will fix the problem. Any ideas of why this is happening and how I can fix this problem permanently.

Thank you

Can you post the line used to map the drive?  (I'm mostly curious what variable you are using for the server name.)

Have you checked both the PDC or BDC for an old logon script?
