I have a window desktop 64 bit that I joined to a domain and migrated the profile from a workgroup to a domain using profwiz.exe

Everything is fine except for the network drives which disappeared a few times.

Whether I am logging off or the user just sits there, it wouild disappear and I have no idea why this is happening.

Can anyone help me with a possible solution or reasonf or this to be happening?

Event viewer does not show any problems related to this.

I managed to create a quick .bat file to remapped the drive on login and on the user desktop that she can run when she can't get into them.

Hi MasterNeo,

You might check to see if you have any other Group Policies applied that might be removing the network drives?

When the drives are mapped and working properly, run a "gpupdate /force" at a command prompt and see if they dissappear. If so, run "gpresult /Scope User /v" at the workstation to see what GPO's are being applied. Might point you in the right direction.

I don't think it a GPO cause it right now happening to single user from what I can tell.

Hmmm...

Probably a stupid question but did you make sure that "Reconnect at Logon" is checked when your mapping the drive?

How are you initially mapping the drive? Manually or thru GP?

Manually. I added a logon script to the user to get around the issue until I can figure out what causing it.
