Ok, here is a problem I have been having lately and it is driving me crazy. I have a network with a server running 2008 Standard R2 and 4 workstations using Windows 7 Professional 64-bit. I also have 1 other station using Windows XP Professional. The software I run off the server is installed as a client install on the workstations and have to use a mapped drive of E: to let the software see the database. Every 6 to 8 hours of non use of the software... when I reopen it I get a not responding and it has to close and reopen. I looked at the mapped drives and the E: drive disconnects but after opening the E: Drive up it connects right away and then the software works fine. I have tried a lot of things people are saying online. I have disabled autodisconnect -1 in the registry and turned off power management on the Ethernet port. I get the following message when I look at the event viewer...
Event 1005, Application Error
"Windows cannot access the file for one of the following reasons: there is problem with the network connection, the disk that the file is stored on, or storage drivers
on tihs computer may be missing."
But here is the kicker... The windows XP Professional works all the time with no problems so it has to be Windows 7. I have the IPs static in the NIC properties and using the DNS of 184.108.40.206 and 220.127.116.11 which is Google. I was using 192.168.0.100 which was the IP of the server but that didn't make a difference.
I gave a lot of details to weed out the normal postings so any help would be appreciated. Also I have DHCP and DNS turned on the server if that would be any possible issue that is causing. I don't know beings I put Google as the DNS if routing in the software would be an issue?
