Why are mapping network drives NOT completely showing up in Windows environment?

We have Windows AD 2003. We use a loginscript .cmd file to map about 5-8 network drives with the command like:

net use U:   \\servername\folder /user:domain\username password

But sometimes, somehow it just doesn't display all mapped drives. When users cannot see all mapped drives we will instruct them to re-run a couple of more times. But each time the Map script is run, at least one of the drives will be missing. Can’t seem to get them all at the same time. Say if it shows up with the U, then the Y will be missing.  Ran it again and have I & Y but no U.    sigh
Even the drive doesn't show up, I can still use UNC path to access that specific folder the drive refers to so it is nothing to do with the permission. Please help.

Hi:
Have you tried the oft recommended method of disconnecting prior logons then connecting them again as in:

net use U:  /delete
net use U:  /path

repeating for each drive to be mapped.

Also are you sure that all users have access rights to the share you are mapping to?

Larry,

Answers to both your questions are Yes and Yes.
We do delete the connection and then re-connect every time. Also the drives are accessible to the users. Remember I mentioned it works most of time.
