Re: Problem with mount points

Hello,This is the problem with drive letters and one example of where they are
evil. Change the mount points from using drive letters to using UNC
paths. Then both user A and user B see the same thing.
i have have a problem with cygwin1.7 on windows Server 2003 Standard
Two user works on the same server machine e.g. myserver1.
User A mapped the shared drive where cygwin is installed to the drive
letter Z: and user B mapped this shared drive to T:
So what happens? The user who starts a cygwin shell first has no
problems, but the user B who start cygwin after user B has wrong mount
User B see the main mount points from user A.
===> /, /usr/bin, and /usr/lib is mapped to Z: and not to T:
How can i solve this problem?
$ umount -s /
$ umount -s /usr/bin
$ umount -s /usr/lib
$ mount -sbf //server//share/path/to/cygwin /
$ mount -sbf //server//share/path/to/cygwin /usr/bin
$ mount -sbf //server//share/path/to/cygwin /usr/lib
Note running Cygwin from a network location will do very little to speed
