While configuring the map drive do you enable the option 'Reconnect at Logon'?

/persistent in the logon script for the mapping.

You've probably got something like

net use blah blah

Put /persistent:yes at the end of the line

Idle connections are disconnected by default after 15 minutes

running the command  net config server /autodisconnect:-1 will disable this nuisance


Mapped Drive Connection to Network Share May Be Lost
