Workstations disconnect from Server 2003 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have four workstations that are mapped to a Windows Server 2003.

    Every morning, when the users try to access to any network location they receive the following error:

    "Location is not available. drive:\ is not accessible the system detected a possible attempt to comprise security. Please ensure that you can contact the server that authenticated you".

    I look for a solution related to loosing communication with the server, and I found this link: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;297684

    I asked to my 4 users to execute the command : net config server /autodisconnect:-1 on every workstation. But they are still having the issue. 

    Do I have to execute the same command on the server, for this to be fixed? Is it an autodisconnect issue or is there any other problem that i can not see?

  • This issue is still unsolved!

    I followed the instructions at  http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;297684 and applied the change for the autodisconnect to FFFFFFFF as instructed on all workstations as well as the server.  No luck.

    Can someone help me please?

    Thanks in advance.

  • Hi!

    Since July 14, 2015 you have a WServer2003 no longer supported by Microsoft, some updates in your workstation are more recent than the updates in your server.  Updates in your workstation cannot synchronize and match (profiles) successfully at determined time during the day and it caused to disconnect.  It is a security issue. 

    Resolution - move to a newer version - Windows Server 2008 will be good enough depending on your network composition and dimension.
