Shared Drives drop and will not restore

By CurtisInterruptus ·
On a straight Windows 2000 network with shared drives: with the timeout set to 30 minutes, some units' shared drives drop out (red X) and when you click, they return ok, others lock up and give an error message similar to the following: "Microsoft Windows Network: The local device name is already in use. The connection has not been restored." On units that are running critical apps locally but with their data files on shared drives, this causes us lost data and sometimes locked apps. I havechanged NICS, double-check NIC settings, played with timeout values, even turned the timeout OFF totally, with little to no luck. Any ideas?
