Network Drives won't stay connected
Posted on 2008-10-01
Hope someone can shed some light on this issue. We have 2 server 2003 that hold a few different shares each. A few times throughout the day, certain users (usually the same ones) networked drives will 'drop out'. Usually my computer shows the drive, and says "Disconnected Network Drive". Often just by single clicking the drive it will connect, but not always (most of the users call me over before doing this, as they try to gain access to the drive through an app). Drives are set up by a login script. One thing I was thinking of using is the
net use s: \\xxx.xxx.xxx.\share /PERSISTENT:YES
I can't find any good documentation on what that switch actually does. Any suggestions?
