Users lose drive mappings intermittently throughout the day. Server 2012 domain environment.

    Question

  • We have a GPO that maps drives from our Server 2012 Domain Controller, the drives are mapped by security groups and map successfully to the users.

    Drives are currently mapped by \\ServerName\FolderName

    However, throughout the day multiple users will lose the drive mappings and have them reappear shortly after. This happens at random times to random users.  Most all users with the issue are Windows 8, although the domain itself is primarily using Windows 8 OS's.

    I was able to find these events in the one of the individual users computers.  Where they lose connection but are reconnected shortly after.  This happens multiple times throughout the day.

    Change your mapping action from "replace" to "update". Replace will
    disconnect the drive and then reconnect it at every background GPO
    refresh, starting with 8.1. Or disable background refresh for the drive
    mapping CSE.
