Mapped Network Drive points to wrong location

By moberg.jeff ·
I have a user that is ecperiecing this problem sporadically. Whenever the user logs on, two networked drives should be mapped auomatically. One of them points to a share drive that everyone has access to and is mapped via a logon script. The other drive is the user's personal mapped drive that is assigned in the user's profile in Active Directory. Every now and then both drives will map to the general share that is mapped from the logon script. Does anyone know what may be causing this? The user uses Windows XP and the server in question is running Windows Server 2003.

Does the user have a local mapping?

If the user mapped the drive at some time to the shared location for the other drive then this behavior can happen.

You should be able to resolve this issue in your login script.

Before each mapping insert a net use /delete command for that drive letter. This will clear the drive letter first including any locally mapped ones and then the correct mapping will fire on te next line of the script.

Best of luck.
