I remember seeing some issues a long time ago with trying to use Z for 
drive mappings. If memory serves me correctly its got to do with how the 
netlogon share is temporarily mapped while logging into a domain (i,e, 
it uses z for this). I could be wrong but in that case using an 
alternate drive letter (such as Y) made things just work. To this day i 
never use Z for a drive mapping in a domain scenario.

Try using another drive letter to map. You can probably mount manually 
because thats after/before the domain logon stuff which means z is not 
in use.
