Start Menu and Desktop lost on DFS
We currently redirect users to a shared start menu and desktop that runs from our name space. At the moment users have default server for the name space but another server has the replicated folders and listed in the name space.
In a test on fail over of the default server, users could still use the shared start menu and desktop, but need to log off and logon again for the redirection to the new server to be applied. We have Windows 7 clients and were just wondering why we have this issue on fail over. Is there a hidden GPO to stop the network redirection dropping immediately upon loss of connection?

Does pressing F5 on the desktop make everything show up?

To be honest, we have not actually tried that! Will give it a go though
If this does work, is there a way of doing this automatically? Majority of the computers using the DFS are located in primary schools and we cannot expect small children to know this

If it works there could be some kind of simple script running in the background to automate it.
