User loses connection to Home Drive after server reboot

This may be expected behavior but I thought I would post because I'm not sure. In our scenario, users in Active Directory have their Home Drive set to a UNC sharename and this is working correctly. However, if the server is rebooted (for maintenance or other reasons), the connection is lost (even after the server becomes available) and it is necessary to log off the client and log on again to restore the connection. I have suggested a workaround of using Offline Files but we haven't heard back yet from the system administrator. Is this by design, or is there some setting somewhere that can change this? Thanks very much!
