I have 5 workstations running windows 7. Our server runs server 2003. I have taken steps to eliminate the disconnecting of our mapped drives but they periodically disconnect during the day causing issues with some software we are using over the network. Below is what has been done as other resources have instructed.

Server:
I removed the autodisconnect from the server using:

Code: Select all

net config server /autodisconnect:-1
Client:
Changed one registry values in:

Code: Select all

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\LanmanWorkstation\Parameters
KeepConn set to 65535(dec)
NOTE: The client-side session is automatically disconnected when the idling time lasts more than the duration that is set in KeepConn. Therefore, the session is disconnected according to the shorter set duration value between AutoDisConnect and KeepConn. To change the time-out duration in the client-side during a UNC connection, specify the arbitrary time in KeepConn.
Locate and then click the following key in the registry:

Code: Select all

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\lanmanworkstation\parameters
Value: KeepConn 
Data type : REG_DWORD 
Range : 1 to 65535 (sec) 
Default value: 600 sec = 10 mins
