problem disconnecting / replacing a networkdrive on windows 2003 server

I want to replace the N drive to map it to the same location but with other credentials.

The mapping is shown in windows explorer as a “disconnected network drive

When I run “net use” i get this .

“New connections will be remembered.
There are no entries in the list.”

When I try to remove the existing N-drive I get this:

“The network connection could not be found”

But I cannot use the N-drive to map using another nt –account.

OS : windows 2003 server

NET USE N: /DELETE
didn't work

a reboot allowed me to get the N-drive disconnected and replace it by another one

Hi.

Try this:

NET USE N: /DELETE

followed by:

NET USE N: \\ComputerName\ShareName [password | *]
[/USER:[domainname\]username]

For example:
NET USE N: \\Server1\MyShare password | mysecretpassword /USER: mydomain\JohnSmith

HTH,

Was it possible that the drive mapping was in use by an application at the time? Since the reboot allowed you to clear the mapping, that would be my guess.
