We used batch scripts to map drives in our win 2000 network. When I now use kix to map drives it doesn't remove my old connections. I then put in the net use f: /d in the batch script and it then worked out.

I know that this shouldn't be any problem but it happend on about 50 computers so I wonder if someone know if its a bug or what it can be. I map the drives thru a script which uses ingroup.

if ingroup...
use f: /delete
use f: \\server\drive

More than likely, you need to add a /PERSISTENT switch in addition to the /DELETE to remove these mapped drives..

Thx it works!

When I look in cmd with net use command and I have connected to I: it says connected. When I then use

USE I: /del

and then type net use, it says I: not availble, and I cant see it under my computer. If I then try to use

USE I: /Del /Persistent

It dissapear totaly from net use view. Thats good. The strange is, even if I use

USE I: \\server\share /Persistent:no
USE I: /del

It says not available when I type net use. Doesn't Persistent:no works with kix, I think I have read i should?

The Persistent switch does not work the same with KiX USE as it does with NET USE.
Give a man a fish and he will be back for more. Slap him with a fish and he will go away forever.

Yes, and no ...

'Persistent:no' would be the same as ommiting it completely in kix ... so only use /persistent if you want it persistent and omit if you want it non-persistent...

What happened might be that it ignored the :no part and made it persistent
