Mapped network drives keep failing on client computers

Last Modified: 2012-05-12
I am having an issue with client computers failing to map a network drive on login. There is now only one (1) DNS server in play. Recently the other DC was removed, all of the FSMO roles were moved over. I have gone in and removed all entries that were pointing to the old DNS server.
When a client has this issue, if I re-image the Pc and put it back on the domain the client will map all of the drives correctly. All mapped drives are pointing back to the DC except for one mapped drive that points to the SQL server.
Any ideas as to why it is not mapping properly and why after a fresh re-image it will map the drives OK again for a while?
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank-you in advance for respondiong back, I need all of the help that I can get.
