    Could someone tell me what this does...?

    I found this sitting in a bat file set up as a logon script in the default domain policy and I'm not sure as to why it's there or what it's doing.

    Code:
    Net config server /autodisconnect:-1

    It means that auto disconnect is disabled.

    Google is your friend.

    Hi

    Have a look on this page

    net computer/ net config / net statistics

    It says

    To disable idle timeouts altogether
    NET CONFIG SERVER /Autodisconnect:-1
    Note this may reduce overall performance - see related KBase articles below.

    Heh I like this comment in the KB article.

    If you configure the Autodisconnect option to -1 at the command prompt, Autodisconnect is set to the upper value in the registry. This is approximately 8,171 years (not tested), which should be long enough to be the equivalent of turning Autodisconnect off.
    I have visions of some poor MS intern waiting around for 8,171 years watching for an red cross to come up on the mapped drives icon.
