Hallo, Sabine,

But you can't assure that every user disconnects via this command.

Windows is a multitasking system. Subsequent lines in a *.bat or *.cmd  
may be executed nearly parallel.

To avoid that you should work with "start /w ...", p.e.

   start /w net use * /del /yes

   start /w net use u: \\%SERVER%\%USERNAME%

Viele Gruesse!
