Windows Server 2000 SP4. The issue I am having is the mapping of a local shared drive. I have two hard drives in the computer; one C drive and one D drive. I am sharing the d drive and my third party application has scripting that uses that virtual drive letter to gain access to files. I am using the NET USE command to map the drive and give it the letter Z. So my D Drive shows up as a Virtual Drive accessed by Z:.
Under Service Pack 3 it was working fine but now since I upgraded to SP4 it appears to be broken. If I map the drive using the SUBST command I have no problem accessing the files, but after a undetermined time when using NET USE I can no longer access the files. I am trying to understand how NET USE is different from SUBST and the possible causes of this problem.
