I run login scripts for users to map drives, etc.
I recently setup a new server and moved the network folders to the new server
I edited the logon scripts so the drives will map to the new server and not the old server, e.g. net use g: \\newserver\folder
When the user log ons, the logon will not map the new drive, because the computer already has the drive letter mapped to the old server and will not map the drive letter e.g. net use g: \\newserver\folder
Is there a command I need to put in the logon script to un map the old drive and then map with the new drive mapping?  
I want to use the same drive letters when mapping to new server, for users shortcuts, etc.

Hey Danberry in our organization we create a simple .bat file and use the following command to map a drive letter:

@echo off
net use o: \\server-name\sharename /y

We then run a logoff script that removes the network drives on logoff using the following command

@echo off
net use o: /delete /y

Do this for each drive letter you wish to remove and it should achieve the desired results

You can also try adding the two statements combined in the logon script with the netword drive deletion commands running first as shown below, this should delte any o connections and re-map to the new share location:

@echo off
net use o: /delete /y
net use o: \\server-name\sharename /y

Let me know how you make out :)
