Error with mapped drive

Hi,

Having a strange issue with a mapped drive. All other drives are ok but one is causing a strange issue. Some days there is no problem and other days random users will not be able to access the drive. Relogging in often resolves the issue but can sometimes take a few attempts.

When browsing to the server the share can be seen and  accessed that way even when the mapped drive has an error. Unfortunately the error message displayed is not much help and there are no related issues in the event logs of the server where the shared folder is located.

Error message is attached.

Thanks.

Maybe the network is disconected between the two computers when this message is displayed. Try monitoring the network!

Can't be the network as other mapped drives to the same server still work.

Have you tried deleting the drive, then re-mapping it?

Tried deleting the drive and remapping it over the last few days. Drive is mapped via a script and was set up:

//FQDN/share

Changed this to:

//Hostname/share

This seemed to make the issue worse and users took a lot more relogins to get connected so I changed to:

//IP/share

This made the issue a lot better but there is still the odd time where a user cannot connect to the mapped drive.

Mapping seems much better now done on IP. Doesn't fully explain why but users are happy.
