Strange problem that is happening on our terminal server 2003 sp2 standard edition. When a user logs on a batch file runs mapping 3 networked drives. This seems to run correctly but only 1 or 2 driver show. I know the batch file works because i can go to the command promt and type net use, it then displays the 3 drives in the command window, but If i go to my computer they are not showing.
Things i have tried;
1. Log off and back on as the same user - result all network drives now show
2. Clear that user profile and log on again - results in 1 or 2 mapped drives appearing
3. Log a user on, run task manager stop the explorer.exe and start the explorer.exe process - result all mapped drives appear
4. searched google tried to a patch but it says i am running the latest versions
Here is what my batch file looks like
net use s: \\server2\staffdrive$ /persistent:no
net use m: \\server3\sme /persistent:no
net use p: \\server3\Programs /persistent:no
net time \\server /set /yes
We use fully qualified domain names. Would it help you if you did the same?
net use s: \\server2.domain.local.domain.local\staffdrive$ /persistent:no
net use m: \\server3.domain.local.domain.local\sme /persistent:no
net use p: \\server3.domain.local.domain.local\Programs /persistent:no
net time \\server.domain.local /set /yes
How about running a line to delete the connections before the line to connect them?
I'm not sure of the syntax exactly as we use kixtart scripting but we had a similar issue so we ran a command to disconnect first.
