Disconnected Network Drive problem
Posted on 2006-11-06
I've looked through lots of solutions for this problem and tried several but none seem to have worked.
Setup is a single SBS2003 server with XP Pro SP2 clients
If I run "net use S: \\servername\sharename" from any of our clients, they will all show drive S: correctly in the "My Computer" window.
With the same command in a logon script.bat for client machines, all clients' "My Computer" windows show the share as a "Disconnected Network Drive" immediately on logging on. Double clicking the disconnected drive icon accesses the share correctly without any delay.
I have disabled the timeout on the server & removed old Network folders from all user profiles on the clients' registries, then let them be recreated & populated both to no avail.
Repopulated, the Network\S folder for the DefaultUser shows:
Connectiontype = 1
DeferFlags = 4
Provider: Microsoft Windows Network
ProviderType = 131072
RemotePath = correctly reported
UserName = \networkname\pcname$
Interestingly, the Network folder for CurrentUser is not recreated.
Can you help, please?
