Keep Getting Disabled on i5/OS NetServer

We're running V7.1 and are running into an issue with about 5-7 users that are disabled daily from the mapped drive to the IFS. All of our users have the drive map on login and all of our username and passwords are different on the Windows and iSeries side but it's only effecting 5-7 users. I can go in and reenable them in Navigator but it's a pain. What can I do to resolve this and why is it only effecting a select few? We're running Windows 7 as well.

    We have about 50 users who link to the IFS and see the same problem from time to time.  In our case, the most common cause is Windows and iSeries passwords out of sync.  Sometimes users check a box to remember their password which aggravates the problem.

    WoodEngineer,It's the same way with us. The Windows and iSeries useranmes are different, as well as the passwords. They don't check the remember password box though. It's beyond frustrating because it only happens to a handful of users. Myself, for instance, doesn't ever have the problem but the 5-7 users that do, it happens every day.

    Where can I access the audit journals? -- Simplest is to run DSPJRN QAUDJRN on a command line. If your system is configured to log the failure events, the reason will be logged. We can help interpret entries. -- Tom

    I have seen this happen also with users who have mixed case Windows passwords and iSeries passwords at level2 (ignore case).Changing the password to non-mixed case solved the problem.

    ... iSeries passwords at level2 (ignore case).   Both password levels 2 and 3 are case-sensitive.   However, password case differences between Windows and iSeries can be a problem if the Windows password is sent. It's just another kind of difference.   Tom
