ArcCatalog Folder Connections - be able to script it or use a tool

Idea created by mayad85 on Feb 16, 2012
    Within the context of a corporate GIS working group, it would be great to be able to run a python script or have an ArcToolbox tool (that can be batched) to (re)connect to a standard set of network folders in ArcCatalog; as opposed to individually (re)connecting folders one by one through the button/right-clicking in TOC of ArcCatalog's GUI. It would save time and assist in standardising a set of corporate GIS folder connections within the working group, especially in circumstances of machine replacements/rebuilds/new OS systems, new employees, etc. Alternatively, it would also be handy to have the option to set these connections at time of software installation.
