Thread: Mapping dropped

  1. Mapping dropped

    Hi,

    Using Novell Small business 5.0 with SP2

    Clients are Win 2K and XP using client 4.90 with the Beta Patch.

    The clients will randomly drop their drive mapping to the network.
    Sometimes, minutes later the mapping will reappear entirely on its own.

    Manually re-mapping will then last anywhere from a matter of minutes up to
    half an hour.

    No error messages at the server or workstation. (Just messages from the
    apps complaining about not being able to find their data files.)

    Any suggestions?

    The NetWare "watchdog" process may be disconnecting the client because
    the LAN card driver is not responding to watchdog packets. The most
    common solution is to update the LAN card driver.

    For an explanation of watchdog see here:

    Hope this helps.
