How do you map the share? Via logonscript or is mapped as home share? Or 
was it mapped through Windows with the "remember" option?

I guess you had mapped the share on Win7 manually on windows with the 
"always do on logon" option. And then you try to mount the share via 
logon script or some other automatic way, what results in "already 
mapped" message.

But this is just a guess, as you gave not very much information about 
your environment and how you map the shares, etc.
