map drives

By merv307 ·
I created a folder on my Windows 2000 Server. Then, I shared the folder and gave eveyone FULL CONTROL of it. I went to each individual workstation and created a MAP DRIVE to that folder(\\servername\foldername). The next day, I click the icon "My Computer"(Desktop) and tried to access the drive. There was a red x over it and when i tried to click on it , i got the message, "Could not reconnect , file name already in use". I then disconnect the drive and remapped it. Why do u think this is happening?

Hi,

Try removing all mapped drives (especially including scripted one from any logon script) and try again.

I have experienced this before when a scripted mapped drive used one set of credentials and a manually created mapped drive used another.

When you are mapping the drive be sure to check the box for reconnecting at each logon. That way the computer finds the share and connects it to the mapped drive automatically when you logon to the computer.

The Red X is something deferent than Couldn't open the Drive.
It means that this Mapped Drive has a server connection timeout (15 minutes by default).
to avoid that type the Following in the command prompt:
NET CONFIG SERVER /Autodisconnect:0 (Disable it)
NET CONFIG SERVER /Autodisconnect:-1 (enable it)
NET CONFIG SERVER /Autodisconnect:30 (make it 30 minutes).. Etc

Also, Make sure that you'r not using a letter to map the drive already included on a Script.

Good Luck
