Hello, good morning! In my environment we map several network drives through an AD logon script. All of them map as expected.

The issue comes when we try to enable Offline Files for any specific drive. It starts syncing, finishes and shows no errors BUT when I try to access any of the mapped network drives I get different errors such as:
a. Network path not found
b. This connection has not been restored
c. Microsoft Windows Network: The local device name is already in use
As a workaround, if I run NET USE * /DEL and then re-run the logon script all network drives work again, or if I reboot the computer.

I do not thing the workaround is a viable one on a production environment so I want to ask I anyone has seen a similar issue and what to do recommend me to do to investigate it or solve it.

Thank you!
