[Samba] windows /bat script question

Subject isn't exactly samba, but samba people usually know a lot about
windows bat scripting. Here's my problem:
Currently our domain login script is doing this (among other things):
if errorlevel 1 ( net use p: \\server1\projects )
This works fine. The problem is I'm moving the projects storage to a
different server called server 2 (which is linux running samba 3, so it
is samba related somewhat). The logic I need is:
If p: is on server 1, remove the persistant share \\server1\projects, then
if p: does not exist, create a persistant share p: \\server2\projects.
Sounds easy enough, but I have no idea how to test if a share is on a
particular remote server. I'm trying "if exist \\server1\projects", but
that doesn't work the way I want it as scripts seem to only understand the
local drive letter names, not the remote names. I could try to spit out
the contents of "net use p:" to a file, then parse out the remote name
string, and compare that, but that seems like a hard way to accomplish it
and I don't want the script parsing out stuff during a login. There's got
to be an easier way.
I could also just always remove the p:, then mount it from server2. But
that adds an extra /delete every single time someone logs on, I'd prefer
not to do that. I only want to /delete p: if p: is remote server1, not if
it's remote server 2.
Anyone have an idea?
Thanks in advance,
