DOS commands to open & close a network share
Posted on 2014-02-18
A handful of my users are experiencing a problem when they login. Their home folder is mapped to a network share (U: drive). Unfortunately, it seems that when the user logs on the system brings the drive up as disconnected. This causes problems with applications that need to write to this U: drive as it believes the U: drive is disconnected. If I have the user open their U: drive and run the application again the system recognizes it as connected and the application works.
I'm looking for DOS commands that I can add to their respective logon script that will open up their home folder (the U: drive) and then close it. If this can be transparent to the user that is great as well.
