I have a vague recollection of something like this happening at a previous
employer. I mapped drives for a couple of people who needed to send orders
electronically through a web site. Anyway, I remember the maps disappearing
once or twice. I was able to just re-map the drives. It could be Netserver
or, as I claimed then, just another Windows glitch. It used to be a lot
easier to track down the cause of these problems before we got so
inter-connected. .-)

Never had to look at anything. Got to work today and there were all the
mapped drives, as is nothing had happened. My guess is that the connection
between the i and the two versions of Windows is somehow different.
Something did not get cleared with the XP connection.
Just glad I had the Windows 2000 box so I could access the data.

Can't help but wonder if a PTF is floating around that might have addressed
this, if only the sa cared.

Look for netserver (iNav will show all the server jobs running) or if

map drives with a red X indicating not currently connected.
Attempting to open the share should prompt user/pwd & reconnect the
map drive.

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?
