User wanted to rename printers that are shared from a server. Renamed the shared names and changed the login script that pushes out the printers.

I got the changes to reflect on one user, but when we  tried it on another user, she does not see the changes.

Ideas?

Did you include in the script to remove the previous drive mappings and printer mappings before remapping?

I probably did not include the command to delete the previous mappings.

What is that command?

@NRhode

If he did not include information in the script, wouldn't all users experience the same issue?

What I would try and do is navigate manually to the login script and run it from the users desktop and see what happens.  This way you can get a visual of if its working and maybe catch an error message.

@hindsight
The reason I recommend removing the mapped drives 1st is to prevent possible issues when assigning the new script.  Random issues of drive already in use and not changing because it already exists.  It is recommended when implementing new login scripts to disconnect any existing network mappings.
