Attempting to open the share produced the message that the share was
unavailable. One shared drive assignment completely disappeared, and
attempting to remap it fail. I needed to send a file and the XP
computer could not find the share at all. The W2K box had no issues
with the same share. I thought I had read here something about XP
having issues with shares. Can't remember and not even sure what to
search on. Just glad I had the W2K box.

Since only XP seems to be effected, it seems like it isn't specific to
the i. But, there is that nagging almost recollection of some issue
with XP and shares.

The net use command clearly shows the shares as disconnected. After
reboot, no prompt came up to request the password for the shares. I
just wonder if the abrupt disconnect left something hung on the i that
might still be hung after the IPL just after midnight tonight, and
where I should look. I will look at iNav when I get a chance. Just
weird - I go for days not needing to access a share and al is well.
Then, when I HAVE to access a share, they all go away. Murphy is
involved.

Attempting to open the share should prompt user/pwd & reconnect the map
drive.

Subject: Disappearing shared folders


I have two computers.  One has Windows 2000, and the other has Windows
XP.  The XP box became unstable.  I was able to shut it down in a
controlled manner and reboot.  But, following that reboot, mapped
drives to the i are no longer accessible with XP  Same shares still
show up on the Windows 2000 box.

The i will be IPLed this weekend.

Is the network problem with the i or with the XP box?  If on the i,
will the ipl fix the problem or is some other step required?  The i is
at v5r4, hopelessly behind on PTFs.

I am hoping the issue gets fixed by the weekly IPL.  Is thre something
to look at in the meantime?
