Map Network Drive Keeps dropping Authentication
Posted on 2013-11-02
I have configured a shared folder on a Windows Small Business Server 2011 as a Mapped drive on a Windows XP machine. While the Server is configured with AD, the XP machine is not a member of the domain for organisational reasons. There are three other machines which also have this drive mapped.
Every few days the mapped drive on this particular machine drops connection and cannot reconnect due to authentication issues so I have to manually re-enter a username and password and reconnect. Then it repeats itself in a few days.
All the machines have the same AV and Firewall suite and configuration. The other three clients are 1 XP and 2 Win 7. Any ideas why this fourth machine keeps dropping connection?
