Loosing mapped drives from admin client to curric dc
During the summer we setup a few windows 7 machines for use on our admin side, all reception and admin have had windows 7 computers and it has been fairly trouble free apart from one or two very annoying problem. We run 2 vlans curric & admin and two dcs curric and admin. Admin staff have no policys on just their ad usernames no other settings applied and their files are stored in a number of shares on the adminserver when and where required.
We have a logon.bat which maps these drives, 1 of those drives maps to a staff document share on the curric dc, we do not have trusts between the dc's setup and this has not been a problem as admin staff are prompted when accessing the curric server for their curric logon. The strange thing is this mapped drive will loose connection, when you try to reconnect sometimes you will get "the network name/share is not avaliable"....ok so I try disconnect then remapping "could not be found". Attempted to run or ping to the curric dc also fail, 5mins later I try again the the mapping works again. The map drive may stay connected for hours, days or minutes it really varys, other times soon as you restart the windows 7 client the drive correctly maps again. We currnetly have the user disconnecting the drive and running a map script every time they loose connection as its not often they need to access the share but as previously mentioned this will not always work and its proving to be a headache! Any help would be great or ideas thanks!
