Mapped drive keeps disconnecting?

I wanted to know if one computer is a member of the domain and the other is just on a workgroup then that is sharing a folder? Both computers are using XP and the domain user is mapping to a shared folder on the workgroup computer. Each time the domain user logs off, then it looses the connection to the network drive? I have got the domain user mapped to the drive with the options to logon as someone else and to reconnect at logon. I then have to manually disconnect the network drive and re-map a drive to the workgroup shared folder. Once I do all is fine until the next time the domain user logs off? Can anyone please help? Thanks

RE: Mapped drive keeps disconnecting?

Even I am facing the same issue and I did the registry hack to add time to the auto-disconnect and also the command "net config server" and still will not stay connected. I have created a job that runs every few minute to copy files from that pcs mapped drive but when disconnected it will not reconnect.

Network Drives Disconnecting Every 15 minutes

My mapped network drives keep disconnecting every 15 minutes. I have tried the registry hack to extend the time the mapped network drives are connected but it has not helped. Anybody out there that has any ideas?
