Renaming the Mapped Drive letter and renaming the Printer.......
Posted on 2004-08-11
I need some advice on the way I should proceed with this matter.
One of the tasks assigned to me in reorganizing our working environment is to change the mapped drive letter for personal and shared drives and rename the attached printers.
I wish to change our personal drive letter from M: to P: by doing so I need to make sure that I don’t screw up with the shortcuts the users might have created on their desktop.
I have renamed the printers on the server and I would like when the user log in, to recognize the new name of the printer that I’ve just changed on the server instead manually disconnecting and reconnecting to the new renamed printer.
I hope its clear what I wish to do. We are working on Windows 2000 server with W2k pro clients.
Just one point: the shared drive J: is mounted through a login script and the Personal drive M: is set in the profile.
Thanks in advance.
