Network drives keep disconnecting

By J.R. Sitman ·
I'm running Win2K professional on all of our workstations. On my station (administrator) my network drives are constantly losing their connection.
How can I fix this.

Network drives keep disconnecting

You do not say how many workstations. Remember that W2K workstation, like all of the Microsoft non-server products, only allows 10 simultaneous connections.

Note that any station sharing drives should NOT have any power-saving methods enabled which might shut down a drive, and should NOT be running any screensaver which generates 3D images. (The latter have a tendency to swamp the CPU, which could cause it to miss a status inquiry.)

Good luck.

Windows 2000 can disconnect idle sessions after a set number of minutes.
The number of minutes can be set at a command prompt using the Net
Config Server command on the workstation side. For example, to set the
Autodisconnect value to 30 minutes:

Net Config Server /autodisconnect:30

The valid value range is -1 to 65535 minutes at the command line.

To disable Autodisconnect set it to: -1.

Net Config Server /autodisconnect:-1
