there are about 25 machines on this network and all are connected to the file shares including this particular xp pro machine. this machine needs to be rebooted daily because it loses its connection or security policy blocks it from accessing the shares.

On both the client and the server issue the following command from an elevated CMD prompt:

net config server /autodisconnect:-1

>>security policy blocks it from accessing the shares

In general, you should run "logon script" for mapping. The users must be able to map file server's shared folder when they logging in for any domain workstation.


For example:
#Logon.bat
net use * /d /y
net use x: \\fileserver\shared_folder1
net use y: \\fileserver\shared_folder2
net use z: \\fileserver\%username%

i am using a login script for mapping, all users have the same script only this one disconnects.

i have run the net config server command, let's see if that helps

"noconnections.png"

This is shared folder not "mapped network drive"?
What is your script ?
The logon account have the permission to access this folder?

i seem to have two batch files on my computer that are named the same and have the same information. these batch files are set to run whenever a user logs into his/her computer.

one is located under C:\WINDOWS\SYSVOL\domain\scripts

one is located under: C:\WINDOWS\SYSVOL\sysvol\TYLERdom.local\scripts

the script is:


net use T: \\TYLERSERVER\TBS /yes
net use W: \\Tylerserver\Snap4 /yes
net use X: \\Tylerserver\Snap3 /yes
net use y: \\Tylerserver\Snap2 /yes
net use z: \\Tylerserver\Snap1 /yes
rem \\TYLERSERVER\sysvol\TYLERdom.local\scripts\SBS_LOGIN_SCRIPT.bat

You are still able to access Z drive (Tylerserver\Snap1) on this particular xp pro machine ?
* (Not directly access shared path)

Some of GPO will DISABLE the users directly access network resources.

I can access the Z drive after i reboot. but then i lose connection after being logged off for a few hours...in order to get back on, i have to reboot.

What should i check in GPO?

-  Mapped Drive Connection to Network Share May Be Lost (Change registry)
