    losing connection to mapped network drives

    Hi
    We are experiencing problems with some of our clients losing their
    connection to our mapped drives.
    A notification suddenly pops up with a message telling the user that they are working
    offline. The connection to our Exchange server is still running and the user
    can use the internet as well.
    If the users just right-click on the Offline notification and select
    synchronize they get connected to the mapped drives again.
    Whats causing this problem?

    I'm guessing these are wireless laptops? We had this problem, Best bet (if the area doesn't need to be available outside of the network) is set the machine name not to go offline in the GPO!

    Hi,

    It sounds like the mapped drives might be timing out due to under activity.

    Check out this KB article, hopefully it helps you out a bit!

    Are you sure you're not getting the offline sync mode kick in? it has it's own criterea (like ping server x, if you can't you're offline)
