Hello!  Have 5 macs running OS X 10.4 and above connected to shared folders on a Windows SBS 2008 server.  All works fine after the shared folder is setup to the server on the Macs, however when the server is rebooted (e.g., for updates) the shared folder disappears and we have to reconnect to the server share for each of the Macs.  What is causing this problem and is there a way to keep the shared folder connection from disappearing on the Macs?
