I am moving a working application to Win 2003 Server, from XP Pro. The Task is started from a remote server to the Win 2003 Server. It starts a job which tries to access a network drive. This network drive is connected prior to the job starting, and yet as soon as job starts it goes to "Disconnected Network Drive". I have ensured that the activity runs normally on the Win 2003 server, so this is only occurring with the REXEC started job. I have chaned the Autodisconnect Parameters in the Registry to 'ffffffff' hex, so that time for disconnect is long. I have also set NET CONFIG SERVER /AUTODISCONNECT:-1 as per Microsoft recommendation. I have rebooted, and tried again - exactly same problem. Any input would be greatly appreciated. ManxAnts

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Win2003 server have additional security settings, and normally you’ll have to add ekstra servers as trusted sources ( in Internet Explorer settings). you can set these through registry or Group Policy. Maybe this is your problem. Try running a network sniffer to capture the traffic in order to narrow down error possibilities.
