I have a laptop on a network. Almost everyday the laptop needs to be reconnected with the users network drive folder on the server (running Server 2012). he next day they bootup their laptop and the network drive is missing again. Over 95% of the time, network drive has to be connected by the server IP address\users\xxxxxxxxx because even though it sees the server on the network, it is not allowed to connect via the server name. I look at the users permissions on the server and their folder and they are there on each. Any idea what is happening to cause this?
