> Hello All,
> We are running a website on Windows Server 2003, .NET Framework 2.0,
> ASP/C#. In response to user interactions, the site sometimes executes
> batch files containing net use commands to temporarily map to our file
> servers. After installing KB956572, all of our net use commands began
> to fail with "System Error 85, local device name is already in use."
> - We verified that the local device name was NOT already in use, by
> any sessions
> - We can successfully map drives by manually entering net use commands
> from a command prompt on the server
> - We can successfully execute other batch files that do not contain
> net use commands
> - After uninstalling KB956572, functionality returned to normal
> Is this an intended effect of the update? Is there a workaround? Is
> mapping just a bad idea in the first place?
