How do I clear mapped drives and a Profile share from workstations?

By PuterGuy07 ·
I just replaced my old Windows 2000 Server with a Server 2008 server. The W2K server was the only server on the network. I have transferred the FMSO roles to the new 2008 Server machine. I have edited the NET USE command in my Logon.CMD file to reflect the new server name. When I login to the workstations, they still map to a share on the old W2K server. I can do the "disconnect a mapped drive" in folder options and map it correctly, but I don't want to do this 5 times on 16 different machines. Is there an easier way?

Second problem is very similar, and maybe the same problem or solution. I edited the "profiles" tab in Active Directory Users & Computers to reflect the new server name where the roaming profiles are now stored, however the workstations are still loading the profiles from the old server. I suppose that I could change the folder name on the old server, have it error out and hopefully "find" the profiles on the new server, but I'm not sure that would work. How do I fix this?

Thanks in advance. Jeff
