Mapping drive with unconventional folder name "A.B. Company Name"

I need to map a drive on clients systems. The problem I am having is the folder name is "A.B. Company Name".

I can map the drive on each client with no issue but trying to GRO or Batch using Net Use Z: "\\Server\A.B. Company Name" fail.

Open a Command Prompt and then type:

Net Use Z: "\\Server\A.B. Company Name"

This should report a numerical error number. Please post here.

If I run Net Use Z: "\\Server\A.B. Company Name" from CMD it maps properly.

When I run the exact command from the logon script I get the error that I am not using the proper switches.

Using net use Z: "\\SERVERNAME\A.B. Company Name" didn't work but net use Z: "\\servername\A.B. Company Name" made the difference.

Not sure why using capitals caused the failure only on that 1 mapped drive and not the others, but it did.

You could have also created a second share name for the folder.

Lee, the company has some very non standard applications that are shortcut to that drive and that would mean redoing all shortcuts and program settings to point to the new share.
