network timeout on mapped drive
Posted on 2016-11-15
We have a new server system installed (Server 2012) and are having a few issues. Some of our software needs to used mapped drives so this has been setup for us. So we have a mapped drive x:\software. We are having a problem with one software item in that we are getting network timeouts and "unable to lock file". We haven't seen this with previous 2008 server. I've spoken with the software supplier who believes our mapped drive is timing out. This seems to happen after a period of inactivity on the programme but not necessarily the computer.
The only difference other than the server that I am aware of is that the drives were previously mapped using netuse script but now, I believe, they are by policy.
Any pointers please?
