Hi all
I have a dos machine that when it boots up tries to connect to a network computer under the j drive.  It states
Fast ethernet boards Ethernet Address:00D0C9271984
Cannot reconnect J: to \\jem\c (Error 67)
Do you want to continue restoring connections.? (Y/N):
The autoexec.bat does not have the system booting to this directory.  Can anyone help.  If I answer N the system continues as normal and boots to the directory I have set up in the autoexec.  I just want to know how this is happening.
regards
Botch

It is windows 2000 server.  The protocol is netbeui.  THe computer on the network  (jen) is windows 98.  The autoexec file is as follows.


@ECHO OFF
LOADHIGH C:\870079xA.EXE
PROMPT $p$g
SET TEMP=C:\DOS
SET LOCAL=6001
PATH C:\NETWORK;C:\DOS;C:\NET;C:\NET\NETBEUI;
LH /L:1,6384 C:\DOS\DOSKEY
LH /L:0:1,139680 /S C:\NET\NETBEUI\NET START
LH /L:1,13984 C:\DOS\SHARE

NET USE F: \\servername\c
F:
cd test\folder1
mfs /vga

Ok, her is your problem.

C:\NET\NETBEUI\NET START

This is saying to go the the net start bat file and run it.  I recomend doing this
Note the changes i made to your autoexec.bat file.

@ECHO OFF
LOADHIGH C:\870079xA.EXE
PROMPT $p$g
SET TEMP=C:\DOS
SET LOCAL=6001
; PATH C:\NETWORK;C:\DOS;C:\NET;C:\NET\NETBEUI;
LH /L:1,6384 C:\DOS\DOSKEY
; LH /L:0:1,139680 /S C:\NET\NETBEUI\NET START
LH /L:1,13984 C:\DOS\SHARE

; NET USE F: \\servername\c
; F:
cd test\folder1
mfs /vga

The ; removes these remarks from running.  Give it a try and let us know.

Hi Glenn
Yeah that does solve my problem but I actually solved it in a different way in the end.  When  asked if I wanted to continue connecting to all paths when it couldn't connect to jem at boot up I said YEs.  Then it asks do I want to re-connect to jem at next bootup I reply no.  "Net" actually stores any drive connection you set up when you type it in in the net window. ie (type in net at the c prompt and specify connection.).  I only considered another way as I needed net started for my program on dos to work as it is stored in network path.  Thanks for the Help
