Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

We recently migrated to a new domain controller. Since that time, one particular user gets an error on her workstation that "the network connection could not be found" NET HELPMSG 2250.

This is a drive mapping error according to my research. The weird thing is, there is no group policy deployed mapped drives and I have removed all mapped drives from her profile. Additionally, the "NET USE" command shows no mapped drives either.

I used RSOP to ensure that there were not any group policies being picked up that would have anything to do with a mapped drive.

Anyone have a clue here? Maybe a way to completely purge any mapped drive info off of a user profile. I do not receive this error logging in with any other account to the same PC.

thanks in advance, will vote for good answers!

When do they get the error? When they first logon? Is there a logon script setup for the user that uses the net use command to map a drive? –  Nixphoe Jun 15 '11 at 1:27
Does the affected user get the same message if logging on to another workstation? Does another user get the same message if logging on to the affected workstation? –  joeqwerty Jun 15 '11 at 1:34
