Problems with Network Shares on Windows7 Professional RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi there,
    i have problems connecting to network drives on Windows7 Professional.
    The Shares are Samba-shares from a DebianLinux.
    On this Server exist different Users which should get different network drives.
    To get these drives on the clients we use a VisualBasic tool which is on a guest share on the Server.
    The Client can also "logoff" wich is realised by a simple "net use /del" so somre users can acess their files on the same computer.
    This program sends username and password to the server and he then creates *.bat files (net use etc.) to connect the users drives.
    To do so the connection uses his ip adress e.g. "\\10.94.1.3\login$\xxx.exe" and user nobody as guest.
    The created *.bat file contains the net use commands as "\\servername\share" with the users anme and individual password.
    If it happens that different user Log on and off or the same user logs on and off windows brings up an error message:
    Error 1219. Multiple Connections to a Server or a shared Resource from the same user ....
    but at this point all shares are disconnected with net use /del.
    At the moment we have to restart those clients the log on again and get the same message after a few log on/off again.

    Anyone knows a solution to this?
    It only happens on Windows7 maschines (WinXP an Win2k without Problems), and the local users of the clients dont exist as any linux/samba users.
    Could it be using "net use /delete" that the shares and connections arent removed completely or some Security options i missed?

    Hope you can help us.

    Best Regards,
    JFuchs

  • Hi,

     

    Thanks for posting in Microsoft TechNet forums.

     

    Please use the command "net use" to view the connections and check if a mapping to the server with no drive connection. If so, used the "net use <mapping> /d" command then retry the connection. After that, net use * /d command again.

     

    You can also try to do the new mapping to \\server.domain\shared folder or \\10.94.1.3\shared folder

     

    This will simply open a new shared resource. Try it, then re-run the net use command to verify this.

     

    If the issue persists, click start, type services and press ENTER. Find the following two services and disable them.

     

    Server

    Workstation

     

    Their depending services need to be disabled alone.\

     

    Best Regards

  • Hi there,
    it seems its adequate to just restart the workstation service.
    But this just works on the GUI tab of the services, not with a batch script.
    Is there a designated sequence for the dependent services to stop and start?
    This solution with the GUI tab of the Services isnt a functional solution for us.
    While thesting this, at some point there is a system error 85: "The local device name is already in use".
    These Network drives arent even deletable with net use * /d. They still remain in windows explorer.
    Just a reboot seems to do it.
    Any other solutions to our problem?
