    We are are trying to map to a user directory that resides
    on a Win2003 server. We are using this code in a .bat
    file. We tried from both the server and machine itself.

    net use \\del\users\%username%

    Says "Error 50: you have attempted an error that can not
    be performed by your computer or from the server you are
    trying to access...."

    The same script runs on a Win2000 machine fine. The
    server is using Active Directory. We can browse to the
    folder and map it manually.

    We would like to have the script run from the Win 2003

    thank you for that.

    What I realized I did not mention was that even if we put
    in the users name into the full path it gives the same
    error. As well if we just type in "net use e:
    \\server\users\username" in the run command, we get the
    same message.

    but our two other net use commands (mapping to shared
    directories) have no problems. only to the users
