All Workstations on SBS 2003 R2 lose connectivity to shares on server upon wake up of hibernation mode.

Hi Experts,

All Workstations on SBS 2003 R2 lose connectivity to shares on server upon wake up of hibernation mode.

This just happened when I applied the SBS 2003 SP2 service pack.

I've read a KB that says to change the LMCopmpatibility setting in registry editor to fix this issue.

I don't what to go fooling around in Regedit just to find that this does not work.

Any help in fixing this issue is much appreciated.

It shows the red x, but cannot connect when reconnect option is available (per my client's attempt).

Upon reboot, the all win 7 pro workstations can use share.

This is a know issue as indicated above--I simply made a batch file and put a shortcut on each desktop that would run net use x: /d to get rid of the existing network connection and then net use x: \\server\sharename to re-establish it--do this for each network connection. Works for me.

Huh?  Why would you do that when you can actually SOLVE the problem by following the steps in the KB article.

I updated all nics on lan and server first then disabled RSS and TCP/IP offload in registry.

Jeff (TSE), you nailed it and I thank all for your support. I will distribute points fairly.
