Mapping does not succeed
Posted on 2008-11-13
Since a couple of weeks we have the problem that some of our mappings do not work.
We make a couple of mappings during a user's logon and use these statements:
net use f: \\applicatie\programs
net use g: \\data\data
net use h: \\archief\masters
and so on
Five of the seven mappings succeed - they map to two different servers. The two that don't succeed have to map to the so called storage server. Just an ordinary server - nothing special. But over and over again the mappings don't succeed. If, however, after a couple of minutes the user starts a little batch we made with just these two mappings in it, the mappings appear (of course instead of that mapping te drives manually works too). The next time a user logs on they've disappeared however, even if we use the /persistent:yes statement. Another workaround (in the mapping.bat: insert a delay of 30 seconds before mapping to the two drives) did not help either.
What can be the cause of this?
Any help would be appreciated!
