Windows 7: One win 7 pc doesnt reconnect shares - others do. (SRV2K3 env.)

One win 7 pc doesnt reconnect shares - others do. (SRV2K3 env.)

Hello.

I am administering a network that runs with a Windows Server 2003 as DC, and several Windows 7 clients.

We have a problem with one of the clients, and that is, that the network drives are not automatically reconnected, meaning the user has to go into explorer, click the network drive (which has a red cross over it) to gain access to the share.

This is not acceptable behavior, so is there something I can do to fix this?

Drives are mapped with this batch script:
Code:
@ECHO OFF
net use f: /delete
net use h: /delete
net use i: /delete
net use k: /delete
net use l: /delete
net use p: /delete

net use f: \\server\sd /yes
net use h: \\server\user$\%username% /yes
net use i: \\server\Administration /yes
net use k: \\server\Skrivestue /yes
net use l: \\server\Common /yes
net use p: \\server\Application /yes
Can that code be optimized in any way?

And how does drive mapping work with group policies now? I know it has been buggy earlier, but is this fixed now?

Regards,
Frederik

Hi,

Add the persistant:yes at the end of the command line to see if that makes any difference. I would also not delete the previous net use.

ALSO, the drive letters are quite low. If users have a USB Stick plugged in it may take the drive letter of one of your mapped drives.


Create a new script and test on one of the Windows 7 PCs:

net use f: \\server\sd /persistent:yes
net use h: \\server\user$\%username% /persistent:yes
net use i: \\server\Administration /persistent:yes
net use k: \\server\Skrivestue /persistent:yes
net use l: \\server\Common /persistent:yes
net use p: \\server\Application /persistent:yes
