We had a similar problem here and found that we had to log in locally as
admin on the box, delete the mapping manually (net use /delete didn't work)
and then it worked fine.  That was for drive mappings that had existed
before the workstations had been moved to the domain, though.

if you run mapping using batch files , use .cmd instead of .bat
add a line before each new share like this
----
net use o: /d
net use o: \\server\share

you should look in to making it a vbs file instead to make it easier to
handle.
you may also want to add printers this way....
depending on the size of your organization
