we have a computer on a 2003 domain that all it does is scan to network and has 3 mapped drives to it. At some random points it will lose its ability to access the mapped drives. they do not disappear. it says we cannot connect. i can remote into the computer when this happens and see all the shares on the server but cannot access them. i can access the server through dns name or ip address.
Why do these shares drop off at random times? The only thing i have come up with is that the licensing for the server keeps coming up about being in per server mode and that we only have 5 cals installed but have 12 computer connected? any ideas?
