Schedlued Task to Map Drives isn't working correctily.

I created a batch file on a Windows server 2003 box that is supposed to create a map drive to 3 other boxes that are running Windows 2000.  Here is an example of what the batch file contains

net use R: \ServerName\c$ /user:MyUserName MyPassword /persistent:no

I use the scheduled task to run the batch file.  This worked fine on the box when it was running on Windows 2000.  Also when I log into the server an manually run the batch file it Maps the drives like it's supposed too.  The problem is that it keeps getting disconnected and the other processes that depend on the drives being mapped are not being ran.

I have checked and double checked and I'm inserting my user info and password everywhere it needs to be.  Like I said if I go in an run the process manaually it works fine.  Its just when I log out of the server the map drives are being disconnected.

can anyone help me with this.

The 3 domain names are the same.  Its a failover server.  The one that run on 2003 is a dev environment.  Will this matter?

I did what you suggested and I ran the batch file manually to see if it would map the drive.

Unfortunately, it did not and the command prompt closed before i could see the error message

Im sorry but i have a life. but im want to help you. One thing that you should know is that this is internet and we have over the world different time zones. The others pcs are windows 2000 server? and one other thing if you map a drive whit your user and then logoff is gonna disconnect that drive. Something that you could try is blocking the station in the case that nobody uses that station localy. Im gonna see if i can find a solution for you. GOOD LUCK
