MAP.EXE - (Yes/No) ? V4.13

Hello,

i have BATCH file that should map Network drives.

I use the a command simular to this

MAP ROOT F:=\\BWCSA\SYS

but when this command is issued the following komment is coming up

Drive F: is in use by a local drive.
Do you want to assign the specified drive as a network drive? (Yes/No)

of course i like to map this drive, so i have to press manualy Y and ENTER.

How i can do this automaticly? Is there a hidden switch that tolds MAP.EXE
that it map the drive everytime and not asking for Yes or No?

Re: MAP.EXE - (Yes/No) ? V4.13

Sounds like you have two or more hard drives, along with maybe two
CD/DVD/burners, which would take the local drives through F:. The solution
to this is to set the first network drive to G: (or whatever the next letter
above the last local drive is) in the client settings, unless you
specifically need F: for a particular reason.
