Net Command

By smpatti ·
When attempting to use "Net Use" on a Windows 2000 Professional system (logged on to a Windows NT domain...all other networking services are functioning), we get the message 'net' is not a recognized internal or external command. This occours with all net commands.
Does anyone know what is causing this or how to correct it?

Thanks,
Stephen

Net Command

I had a similar problem and it was that my path statement was incorrectly configured. Somebody had made changes and overwritten the original statement. I made the required changes and everything work fine afterwards. The net command is situated in the system32 folder.

Hi,
The previous respondents answer is most likely to be correct, but I must tell you about a similar problem I had. Quite a while ago I was at a company that relied heavily on batch files for remote admin \ installs. All of a sudden, when attempting to perform some task or another on multiple machines, notepad would start opening on my desktop. I don't just mean one copy either, lots and lots of copies would open. I found out (being a newbie by asking some advice on the matter), that one of my colleagues had removed net.exe, and renamed notepad.exe to net.exe.
B%&*$?d!!!!

Every time one of the scripts hit a line that used the net.exe file, a copy of notepad would open. : )
