While I am connecting the map drive then the system showing the error "Network Drive path was not found". Even the server is not open own sharing drives. When i check the same from other system then that network path is fine.
One more surprise is my local drives are connected in rdp tool.
Note: 1) None policy implement for this. 2) server service is working fine.3) Server is a member server in AD.

Are you able to ping your server ? If yes try to remap the network drive.
If not able to even ping the server, check ip,subnet and other network connectivity aspects.

Is there any relation to Driver Security Service because I checked all the services are running fine except the Driver Security Service?
