HI Experts,

Actually im running windows 2003 server with GPOs to MAP shares directory to users, for example here one of the scripts :

net use p: \\data0\test

it work fine , but if I want to change to a different path like

net use p: \\data0\pepe

it doesn’t change it on the user , I have to logon the user , disconnect the share , and then in the next logon it will apply the change.

Can you help to find way it doesn’t apply the changes automatically?

Thanks

Simply disconnect the drive before you map the new one:

if exist P: net use P: /delete
net use p: \\data0\pepe

You can circumvent (most of) these problems if you map the drives non-persistently:

net use /persistent:no
net use P: \\data0\pepe

will map P immediately, even if the script yesterday looked like

net use /persistent:no
net use P: \\data0\test

/persistent:no will prevent the mapped drives from being automatically recreated on logon (the same function as the "Reconnect at logon" checkbox if you map in Explorer).
