Drive mappings reveal Admin user

Specs: Windows Server 2003
We are transitioning to a dual file server system where we replicate data with DFS from one server to another and access the shares through Domain Namespace shares pointing to both servers. The file servers are running Windows Server 2003 R2.

Shares are mapped in the logon script using NET USE commands. As we are transitioning users to the new server we notice that the mapped drive listing in Windows Explorer contains one of our Domain Administrator Account Names. It looks like this:

Sharename on 'Adminname(domainname)' (Y:)

Any ideas on how to stop it from listing the Adminname?

It would appear you have named a share the same as an account name. Rename the share or don't map it if not a member of the admin group.

No, sorry, there is no share named the same as this Adminname. The sharename is the first in the sequence and is always correct. The Admin account name is included between the single quotes which usually is only the servername. But since we are mapping to a DFS namespace share it is picking up the Adminname.

"Data Volume" is the label.

Got me then buddy. Shares are not associated with a user name so it has to be a label, sharename or description associated with the share.

Have your reviewed your DFS alias for that share?
