Random disconnect of group policy drive maps

Windows active directory map of network drives through group policy causing disconnect of network drives for windows computers. The network share comes back after a few minutes but it also keeps disconnecting every few hours.  The group policy is under user configuration and drive maps with the action to update with the network path.

On share server runbelow command
net config server /autodisconnect:-1
The command will ensure that server will not turn off idle share connections, server normally do it to save resources

on client computers add registry named keepconn for few minutes to avoid disconnection from client side as well
