Windows 7: Moving Shares to different server, updating mapped drives

Moving Shares to different server, updating mapped drives

Hello forum, I'm new here, and have a simple question.

We are migrating our shares to a different server in our offices, and I'm the one left in charge of making sure everyone gets update. I'm looking into switching this after-hours and having everyone's shares automatically update by using a script.
We are moving all shares off our Domain Controller and on to a dedicated File Server because of some problems with NFS.

Ex. All IT is currently attached to \\dc01\Installs but they will all have to use \\file01\Installs after the switch. Is there an easy way, using the command line, to update the server name on the mapped drive for only the shares my users are connected to?

I know I can attach to a share using "net use" but cannot modify one. I'm sure this has been done a million times before, but, I'm having difficulty finding documentation on the process.
