When I map a drive using the xp_cmdshell net use command it executes successfully.   However the drive is not available in my computer.  If I run the net use statement from the command prompt it maps successfully.  However my issue is that if I run it from the command prompt the mapped drive still is not available in SQL Management Studio.  Has anyone come across this issue before?  Please advise.
