Login not always working (Server 2003)
Posted on 2013-08-29
One of our clients on a Windows 2003 server network, they are running Win 7 Pro on the workstation. All users login via a login script whcih maps a shared server area to the "S" drive and displays a Welcome dialogue.
For a while one of the users has experienced an intermittent problem that the mapping doesn't work and she does not see the welcome dialogue. This would imply the login script isn't working. She has to re-start her PC a few times before it maps properly.
It is only one user out of 15 on the network which experiences this. Earlier this year we completely re-installed her PC (for other instability reasons too), but this problem still occasionally persists. Yesterday despite re-starting a few times, drive S wouldn't map.
However, when I Remote Desktopped in it logged in first time, showed welcome dialogue and mapped the "S" drive. Why would Remote Dekstop work, but not, apparently when she logs in normally?
