Mapped Drives Intermittently missing

I have found an abandoned topic with the exact same problem, but no soultion. We have windows 2k3 servers and it seems to happen on 2000/XP machines. We have a logon script that maps drives. On occasion the mapped drives do not appear in windows. The strange thing is that if you go to "disconnect mapped drive" they appear in there and in the command prompt they are accessible. If you try to access them in windows by typing the drive letter in they do not appear. Any suggestions? Here is the snippet of the batch file involved with mapping: REM REM Map network drives REM rem NET USE F: /delete rem NET USE M: /delete rem NET USE P: /delete rem NET USE S: /delete rem NET USE F: %DATABASESERVER%BESTSERV NET USE M: %PAYROLLSERVER%ADP NET USE P: %FILESERVER%PUBLIC NET USE S: %FILESERVER%SHARED We have 2 Domain Controllers and the batch file is the same on both.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

The only time I have seen this problem is when the client is in a domain and the server is a workgroup. Regardless, you can try a couple of things:

delete the mapping before mapping (in the same script)

‘ net use x: /DELETE
‘ net use x: \servershare

you can also make the map persistent (may still want to delete first)

‘ net use x: \servershare /PERSISTEN:YES
