Is there a Windows 2008 Admin Tool or any utility to allow me to view/manage all mapped drives on all computers on the local network (and computers across routers on another subnet) and allow me to manage the mapped drives remotely?

Similar to the way Print Manager or (Printers and Faxes) displays all network printers and allows you to manage them remotely. Or the way the old HP Jet Admin utility queries every printer on the network and allows you to view/manage them remotely.

There is no ready admin tool to remotely view someone else's mapped drives. Mapped drives are always per user and you need to be that user's security context to see the mappings.

If you use SMS/SCCM you can run software on user's security context so you could then run a script or software that allows you to see the currently mapped drives on that user.

I recommend managing mapped drives with logon scripts.
