UNC path failure

Hi All,

I have migrated a few shares to shares02,

now we have two shares with the name called groups, this means users no longer have access to one of the groups, therefore we have changed the name to groups2 and shared it.

what is the quickest way to map this to users machine?

I need a powershell script to say

if the unc path is groups, e.g \\shares02\groups, change it to \\shares02\groups2\....

thank you in advance,

Do you have Active Directory? Would be easier to do this with AD GPO Drive Map Preferences

I have written this script, I need to replace the group with groups2:

foreach ($computer in $Computers)


if(Test-Connection -ComputerName $Computer -Count 1 -Quiet) {

$s=Get-WmiObject Win32_MappedLogicalDisk -computername $computer | ? {$_.providername -like "\\sreadvfile03\groups*"}

Did these two Group shares come from two servers? If so DFS Consolidation Root would have been the right option
