Missing Drive Mapping on Windows 2003 server
Posted on 2010-01-12
Across a network, a particular application stopped working. The SQL application file refers to the database that drove the application as being missing or corrupt. And it mentions it as being on Z drive.
However, server has no Z drive presently mapped.
Now, we know the database name and will certainly search for it on other servers on network.
But, I was also wondering:
1. How possible or likely is that Drive Mapping designations could just disappear? We are all familiar with situation where a mapped drive is not available because that machine is down. That's not what I am asking. The drive mapping is gone!
2. Any way to determine last drive mapping of a letter if it is not available in the drop down list when a drive is mapped (You know, the list that shows recent mapping). If it's gone, is there a way to determine how?
