  • 'Disconnected Mapped Drive"...

    SYMPTOMS:

    Since the Thanksgiving Holiday (11/26/07), most of my users (140+) receive the following message for a mapped network drive in Windows Explorer: “Disconnected Network Drive (Letter Here)” However, we can still access the contents of the mapped drive. Additionally, when we try to remove the mapped drive in Windows Explorer, we receive the following error message: “The network connection could not be found.” Upon a complete shut down(NOT restart) and then re-start, it seems to right itself, but then after a few hours of being ‘on’, or if the user logs off and then back on, their mapped drives all read “Disconnected Network Drive (Letter Here)” yet again, but can still get to the contents…

    Very annoying and distressful for my ‘non-users’…

    Ideas?

      Code:
      net config server /autodisconnect:-1
