disconnect a mapping on a Novell server 3.2 in windows xp-pro

I have in network a old novell 3.2 server and a SBS 2008 server
I need a drive letter for some software , using in  a batch
net use W:  \\\windata /user:jack /persistent:yes
Problem is that before asigning W:  novell made a search connetion (wich I do not see in loginscript) to W:
using Explorer to disconnect won't work, says programs in use , wich is false,
plus if this happens I want to use a batch file to disconnect.
some net use command exist to do this ??

You could use Net use w: /delete

But if anything in W: is in use that won't work either. Try to find out where the W: mapping comes from.

What is your primary login provider? (microsoft login or Novell client?) Try to login with the novell client with on the Scripts tab the Close Automatically checkbox is ticked Off, that way you can see what is mapped.

And you can use process explorer (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896653.aspx) to find out which files on W: are opened
