Randomly Im unable to access a DFS share through a mapped network drive Using windows 7

DFS shares have been setup on Win 2008 R2 servers and we use a mixure of Win 7 enterprize and Windows Xp PC's. We have only found this problem to be with the Windows 7 machines. On the Windows 7 PC's with also use offline files and folder re-direction all set by group policy.
If anyone can help with a resolution to issue it would be apprieated.

Is there a delay, then you can start accessing the DFS shares again, or do you have to reboot the Windows 7 PCs to regain access to the DFS shares?

You may also try running the following command on the Windows 7 PC:
dfsutil /pktflush

Open in new window


Do you receive a specific error message when you loose access to the DFS share?

No, Connection is only restored  when the pc is restarted and the user has logged back on. I have found the only way round this issue is restart, simply logging off and on again does not solve this issue.
