I have Win2K3 Member Server which i use exclusively for running small batches and processes.
I have FTP Voyager Scheduler from RhinoSoft running on it which runs many ftp jobs to upload and download info from our webserver located at our hosting provider. I have many Mapped drives to various shares on different servers on the network, by default, after 15 min of inactivity the network drives get disconnected, and my FTP jobs crash and every thing gets messed up and i have to manually clean things up, i've been running the same stuff on an NT4.0 box before migration for years and never had a problem, but on this Win2k3 box its just been issues cuz the networks drives dissconnect and i have these jobs scheduled for after hours.
I searched MS KB and goolgle and only found this reference http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;297684
it is a registery key hack, but my max time to renew is 45 days according to the article.
Is there a way to keep the network connection to the shares via mapped drives alive indefinetely, or is there a utility i can use to wake up the drives before my jobs run ?
Any priecise answer to solve this issue would be any easy 450 points.
Thanks in advance and if i have been unclear please advice.
