I have this script to map drives in AD 2003: -
Set objNetwork = CreateObject("WScript.Network")
objNetwork.MapNetworkDrive "K:" , "\\files\shared"
objNetwork.MapNetworkDrive "S:" , "\\files\users"

The users get errors if drive is already mapped does anyone know the syntax to delete then map drives?

You can use 'On Error Resume Next' at the beginning of your script if you don't need error handling. If you do need error handling instead, we need to find a different solution.

You can use the EnumNetworkDrives Method of the Wscript.Network object

something like

            set objdrive = objNetwork.EnumNetworkDrives
            For intDrive = 0 to objDrive.Count -1 Step 2
                  intNetLetter = IntNetLetter +1
                  letter=objDrive.Item(intDrive)
                  unc=objDrive.Item(intDrive +1)
                  If letter="K:" and unc <> "\\files\shared" Then
                        oNet.RemoveNetworkDrive "K:", true, true
                  End If
                  If letter="S:" and unc<>"\\files\users\" Then
                        oNet.RemoveNetworkDrive "S:", true, true
                  End If
            Next
            oNet.MapNetworkDrive "K:", "\\files\shared", true
                                oNet.MapNetworkDrive "S:", "\\files\users", true
