Logon script doesn't replace mapped network share

My intention with this script is to re-map the user's drive mappings to a new server. We are retiring an old file server and copying user and community files to a new server. This script does a wonderful job of mapping drives if they have not been previously mapped and disconnecting previously mapped drives. It won't replace the old U: drive mapping with the new one; it only disconnects it and leaves it mapped to the old share. This is the script:

Dim objADSysInfo, objUser, objNetwork
Dim strComputer, strDriveUser, strDriveCC, strCNUser, strUserLogon

On Error Resume Next

strComputer = "TEAK"
strDriveUser = "U:"
strDriveCC = "L:"

Set objADSysInfo = CreateObject("ADSystemInfo")
strCNUser = objADSysInfo.UserName

Set objUser = GetObject("LDAP://" & strCNUser)
strUserLogon = objUser.sAMAccountName

Set objNetwork = WScript.CreateObject("Wscript.Network")
objNetwork.RemoveNetworkDrive strDriveUser, True
objNetwork.MapNetworkDrive strDriveUser, "\\" & strComputer & "\" & strUserLogon
objNetwork.RemoveNetworkDrive strDriveCC, True
objNetwork.MapNetworkDrive strDriveCC, "\\" & strComputer & "\Campus_Center"

Help with this would be great. Thanks in advance.

This line:  objNetwork.RemoveNetworkDrive strDriveUser, True

Should be:  objNetwork.RemoveNetworkDrive strDriveUser

AND

This line:  objNetwork.RemoveNetworkDrive strDriveCC, True

Should be:  objNetwork.RemoveNetworkDrive strDriveCC

If you MUST use brute force, then you need an additional TRUE.

objNetwork.RemoveNetworkDrive strDriveCC, True, True

Like that.

Thank you for looking at this.

I think I have tried both of your suggestions and thought that I was not getting the results I wanted. I try again. First no true and second both trues.

The no trues produced the Disconnected network drive I have experienced before.

The second true updates the profile (where the mappings are stored for network drives).
