Mapped network drives disconnect constantly...

Our core office consits of a Windows 2003 domain controller and most machines are running Windows XP still.  Upon login to the domain the user account runs a login.bat script which maps about 7 or 8 network drives.  This works fine for all the users in the office locally.  We have 1 remote office connected via VPN (two Cisco ASA 5520's) and 10MB on each side.

Whenever the user goes home for the night, he leaves his PC on, he comes in in the AM and finds all drives disconnected.  He has to reboot which is frustrating for him to have to do every morning since he leaves many projects/windows open to resume in the AM.

Just a quick bit of history... this is happening in a brand new remote location, he recently moved offices about a mile from the old office, so the new office is on Verizon FIOS and the speed is very fast.  We had a Watchguard firewall in the main office which we just replaced with a matching Cisco.  He also had a laptop and i replaced it with a new desktop PC.  So basically as it stands now, his office has been changed, his network connectvity has been changed, his VPN equipment has changed and hes still having the exact same problem.  I dont know what else to do for this user.  There is nothing else to change out.  Maybe its a setting on the DC?  I have no idea, any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

It might have something to do with autodisconnect timeout

As a workaround while you are troubleshooting why not give them a shortcut the your drivemap.bat?
