Active Directory Workstation Dropping Shared Drive

Last Modified: 2012-05-09
I have an Active Directory environment setup with a business and a workstation within this environment is dropping connection to a shared drive on the server.  Other workstations can access the drive shared on the server fine, and never loose connection.  This server only has shared drives and is not supplying the active directory structure.  Call it server04.  When I restart the server, the workstation automatically picks up the shared drive and can do everything it needs to do, but when you restart the workstation, the connection is lost and I am unable to restore it.  All permissions for the user match other users that can access the drive.  Any help would be much appreciated as I am at a loss here.
