Hello,

I have a user account that is logged on to a Windows 2003 server 24 hours a day to process jobs.  The data for these jobs is located on a SAMBA share.  The folders on the SAMBA share are created by a windows service that also grants permissions to the newly created folders.  The problem is that since the user is logged in 24 hours a day, they can not access the new folders without logging off and back on to refresh their credentials.  I was wondering a few things:

1.  Is there a way to programatially refresh the logged in user's credentials without logging off/on?
2.  Is there a way to programatically login a user in a Windows 2003 Terminal server?
3.  I've tried using net use and supplying the password but that does not work.

Please help!

I found the solution which is pretty simple.  You can use the dos command, net use, to delete and recreate the share which automatically refreshes the security context,
