Network Drives reconnecting on SOME machines?

Microsoft Windows small business server...

Specs: Windows XP
Hi, I administer a network with 30 computers on Windows Server 2003, we changed the location of some files last week and all client computers have mapped network drives on S:. We disconnected these and reconnected them all with "logon at reconnect" to the new path and thought nothing of it.

After rebooting, SOME machines have kept the correct map whilst others have reverted to the old. If I delete the map on these computers and restart, it re-creates itself!! why? It seems there's no way of removing the map on these computers as it recreates on restart?

Cheers

normally you map drives via a logon script when they logon to windows server. Most likely this is what you are seeing

I suspect this was setup before you arrived and you have been doing the old peer to peer networking way of mapping from the client machine not the server.

Consider learning about logon scripts. Gives you one place to set it for all 30 machines.

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.
