Sometimes during the same Windows (Vista) session i have to connect to the same (samba) file server in a workgroup (no domain) as another user. It seems Windows has cached the current connection with user info. To force a new authentification i run a batch script:
@echo off net use * /delete /y net use * /delete /y net use * /delete /y net use * /delete /y net use * /delete /y
But this sometime works and sometimes doesn't and force me to close the Windows session.
Is there a way to completely disconnect from actual shares to login as a new user.
I have no program open, no drive letter connected and "net use" empty but still the IPC$ share open on the samba server (smbstatus).
net use \\server\IPC$
net use * /delete /y
And "net use" complains about open files or searches in folders with \server\IPC$ (message in spanish).
I think Vista is still holding the share for searching and indexing.
I think i get this now: i stopped "Windows Search" service and after running the batch i get asked again for credentials.
