  • Mapped network drive may fail to reconnect in Windows 10, version 1809 

    Shared a work around for manually mapping drives, the work around cant be utilized becauses its not picking ports, new update not recognizing ntfs ports. It is not ID-ing windows shared, device unable to locate, it does respond to ping but unable to communicate to port 445

  • Hi,

    Please make sure Port 445 is not blocked on the firewall.

    If you map network drives to users using domain group policies, you need to change the policy settings in order to connect the drives correctly.

    Open the domain policy that connects the drives, and in the section User Settings -> Preferences -> Windows Settings -> Drive maps, find your network drive assignment policy (policies) and change the Action type from Update to Replace.

    After the policy is updated on the clients when the user logs in, the mapped network drives will be deleted and reassigned.

    Best Regards,
