I have a server on my network; let's call it
MyServer. I run a utility on my workstation that copies files to
MyServer and then writes a log file that says whether or not the files were copied successfully. I set up a network share on
c:\FileRepository shared as
FileRepository. My workstation is set up to run the utility automatically each evening.
However, sometimes when I check the log file the next morning, I see that there is an error
The network name was not found. When I log in to the server, I see that
c:\FileRepository is still there, but it is no longer shared. I can easily set up the share again, but it's only a matter of time before the network share mysteriously disappears.
I am not responsible for the administration of this server. I am responsible only for making sure the utility works correctly.
What kinds of issues could be causing the network share to simply disappear from the network?
MyServer is running Windows Server 2003 SP2.
