Search and replace variables!
Posted: Tue Feb 01, 2005 10:49 pm
I am evaluating your product and I am not able to make it work properly.
Here is a sample of what I need:
net use (drive letter): \\(servername) : some other text after
net use (same drive letter): \\(different servername) : same texte after
I need to keep the drive letter (because it could be different) and the texte after the new server name. So, basically, I need to search for that whole string but change the server name only.
Thanks in advance for your help.

Go to Batch replace, check on "Use regular expressions"
Put Search for:
where is oldname is old name of the server.

Thanks for the prompt reply. I have tried your solution but it did not work. Here is a portion of the script. Maybe that will help.
:: Map Network Drives
Net Use G: \\server1\Custom > NUL
Net Use H: \\server2\Apps > NUL
Net Use I: \\server3\Images > NUL
Net Use J: \\server4\Share$ > NUL
Net Use K: \\server3\Baseline > NUL
Net Use L: \\server3\Division > NUL
Net Use x: \\server5\Personnal > nul
But in the script I have historical info that I need to keep.
:: PC Information For software rollout
:: IF NOT EXIST C:\WTSRV %DCROOT%\utils\info w=80 o=\\server3\info$\clients
So how can I change server3 to serverX and keep the text before and after but without changing the historical info?
Hope I was clearer.

Because you said it's :\\servername :
in your source text.
Well in this case it could be done even without regular expressions.
Because you have very formal string:
So disable "Use regular expressions"
Then enter Search for:
It will work.
But it should be done in plenty of other ways too.
For example if you want to make a connection with "Net Use" text
you may use the following pair (enable "Use regular expressions" for
Net Use (\w): \\\\server3\\
Net Use $1: \\\\serverX\\
I verified it works too.
