reconnect mapped drive

Discussion in 'Server Networking' started by Leonard Arsenescu, Sep 12, 2005.

  1. Hi to all.
    The problem is: How i convince win2k server to reconnect to a maped network
    drive if at logon he can't acces that drive?
    workaround: Wni2K server ; Win2kPro (2 partition...)
    on win2kSRv is mapped C drive (full share...full rights..etc) from Win2kPro,
    as drive S. Because of some custom application the server must start before
    the other computer.....
    There are no AD, DHCP, DNS, etc server services on win2ksrv.
    i use those commands on win2ksrv
    net use s: \\siteomat\c$ /persistent:yes
    net config server /autodisconnect:-1
    ....but no resolve. I appreciate some help/refference
    Tx. Leo

    Setting this from the command line will turn off auto tuning for the server
    service. Therefore the generally recommended solution is edit the registry
    autodisconnect value. The command: net config server /autodisconnect:-1
    must be run on the server with the shares on it, not the client accessing
    the shares.

    Also, check the NIC properties on the server to make sure that there are no
    power saving settings or "Allow this computer to turn off power to the NIC"
    type settings.

  3. Thank you for your response. I will do some tests but, after i read articles
    you suggest, didn't seems to solve my problem, because nobody try to map on
    "server" from a "client". The share is on "client" not on "server". This even
    sittuation is generated by those custom application.
    Also, there are no power savings on those computers, for sure. Because it is
    a non-standard procedure i will try to schedule the mapping at 10 min after
    login...or some like.
    Thank you again for your answer.
