mapped drives disconnect

By gordon ·
I have several networks running win2k pro clients. Some have WIN2k Server and some with NT4.0. I am getting random mapped drive disconnects. At one location (win2kserver) the same client disconnects several times a day. It seems to be random. I've changed the port on the switch, this changes nothing.
I didn't build all of these networks (but most of them). I don't think I am the only one with this problem but can't find anybody else.
Any suggestions

mapped drives disconnect

This is normal behavoir, that is, if you are looking at the mapped drives in explorer.

I had a similar problem, but found they were true disconnects. Upgraded the lan card drivers on the workstations and then set the speed setting from auto to in this case 100 full duplex.

Good luck

I had the same problems.
For the clients I hade to update the nic dirvers. I also adjusted the power-save options on the nic-property page.
The server was another problem. There's a command that sets the time-out of the network-connections: net config server /autodisconnect <value>. The standard value is 15 (mins). Try setting this to -1 (no time-out).
Further information at Microsoft (Q138365).

Hope this will help. Success
