This is my first server fault post (more of a stackoverflow guy).
We have several shared drives (on Win Server Standard 2008, SP2), which intermittently seem to lose a connection during the day. Within My Computer on the client machine(Windows XP), it still shows the drive without any folders/files within. I've tried to remap the drive manually or disconnect that drive and map again, which both fail. When I log onto the server and go to Manage the Session for that share, it is showing that a session is currently open for the user that is unable to see the folders in that share. I have also tried running a gpudate /force to see if it was a group policy error, which is always unsuccessful. The only fix is either logging off/in or rebooting.
Also, we have several Windows 7 machines which seem to experience this more frequently than our XP machines. Not sure if that is of any use.
Does anyone of have suggestions for fixes or diagnostics? Thanks.
