NET USE * /DELETE Problem

Hi,

I am having problems with the following logon script:

@echo off
NET USE * /DELETE /YES
@echo off
net use o: \\server1\share1$
net use p: \\server2\share2$
net use q: \\server3\share3$

The idea is I want to dismount all network drives and then map only the drives in the Bat script.
If I run the script from my desktop it works correctly and my network drives are mapped.
When the same script runs when I login it disconnects all the drives but does not mount anything.

Its very strange that it works when I copy the Bat file to my desktop but not when I login.

Any idea's what might be the cause of this?

Hopefully I'm not being incredibly stupid!

It works for me (XP, AD 2003). Try to debug a little:
- delete all @ECHO OFF lines
- add PAUSE as the last command
- try from remote location

I've found the problem.. The account I'm testing the script on has a static home drive mapping.
This was causing a problem with the login script and was unable to map the drives.
(It explains why when the bat file was copied to the desktop it was able to run without problems)

Cheers

Martin.

For Removing the Network Drives, It would be done Easily,

But To Mount The Shared Network Folders, you require their User Credentials to be cached on to your PC, Or Your Pc Should define a policy to cache the Credentials... and Configure Anonymous Shares Settings on Each PC that you want to be mapped as a netw folder,

You Can Define This Policy in Local Security Policy, and Set Security Options. .

Start > Run > Secpol.msc > Local Sec Policy > Local Policy > Security Options > Network access: Shares that can be accessed anonymously      (If you are currently Sharing files from your computer, do not change this field, if you do not want to share files on your computer, delete any entries that exist here) type name of Share e.g. \\Server1\share1
