    Intermittent WinXP Drive Mapping Failure (Windows XP Pro)

    I've been involved recently in rolling out Windows XP Pro to several medium-sized pilot groups. Our servers are all Windows 2000 and we're using logon scripts to map network drives - with each department having their own, slightly customized version of essentially the same script. Most of the mappings occur as a result of any IF...THEN, like so:

    IFMEMBER EOTB_SHARE_GRP
    IF NOT ERRORLEVEL 1 GOTO :QUIT
    NET USE K: SRVMAINEOTB /persistent:no
    :QUIT

    We've never encountered any problems with our Windows NT 4.0 Sp6 or Windows 2000 Pro PCs mapping drives. But some of the Windows XP Pro workstations are experiencing intermittent drive mapping failures.

    I'm guessing that share rights shouldn't be the problem or else the drive mapping would always fail, instead of only occasionally failing.

    Any suggestions?

    Did you ever get an answer to your problem. I'm having the same problem using XP Pro on a Novell 5.1 network. My drive mappings through XP want to be serverfolderuserfolder. What I want them to be is serverroot. (Ex. H: not H:userjdoe). Let me know if you've found a solution. I've remapped through XP - My computer, but the settings don't stick. Thanks.
