Delay to regain access to the network when a Windows XP session is left in stand-by for more than 10 minutes
Posted on 2007-11-29
I have a Windows Server 2003 SBS with 10 licenses. This server is acting as file server and a domain controller. Windows XP workstations are logging onto this domain.
The problem is that if a workstation does not access any network ressources (which are located on the server) for more that 10-15 minutes, and then we try to access a network ressource after this period (a mapped drive for example), it then takes between 30 seconds to 1 minute to regain access to the ressources.
However, if the workstation is not set up to log onto the domain, but instead to just access the network drives simply as part of a workgroup, no such delay is experienced.
A few of the users never log onto the domain because of this annoying limitation. Please help!
