When I do a NET USE it returns something like this:

Status       Local     Remote                    Network
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
OK                     \\10.101.194.32\apps      Microsoft Windows Network
OK                     \\10.101.194.32\customers Microsoft Windows Network
OK                     \\10.101.201.28\C$        Microsoft Windows Network
                       \\TSCLIENT\C              Microsoft Terminal Services
                       \\TSCLIENT\D              Microsoft Terminal Services
                       \\TSCLIENT\F              Microsoft Terminal Services
                       \\TSCLIENT\G              Microsoft Terminal Services

Open in new window


I'm working in an Access database and want grab files from or push files to a file server (the \\10.101.194.32 -- call it PrimeSrvr) in a different domain on the local network. But I will never be sure if the user has already authenticated or connected to the PrimeSrvr on any given day or an particular share.

So I what I want to do is delete all the connections to PrimeSrvr, but leave any others in place, such as the \\TSClient in or the connection the other computer's admins share (the \\10.101.201.28\C$).

I know there is the NET USE * /DELETE, but that would wipe them all out. I just want to wipe out the PrimeSrvr ones only and the re-authenticate so I know I can grab the files I need.

Anyone have suggestions?

Like you know, net use * /delete eliminates all the connections

In your case, you can eliminate one by one the desired connections, for example:

net use \\10.101.194.32\apps /delete

and so on

I'm trying to do this programmatically  from an MS Access DB. I won't know what shares are connected.

You'll likely have to script it.

Check out this link to give you an idea of how to check for mapped drives to one server. Its not what you are looking for, but it'll lead you in a good direction.
