|I currently have a Win2K system with several mapped drives to a couple of Novell servers. These are not mapped in the logon script and it's been so long since this was set up that nobody remembers how it was done. A service running on the Win2K system monitors the Novell drives for the presence of files via the standard \\ notation.|
When trying to duplicate this on a Windows 2008 R2 Enterprise server I found that I had to manually copy entries from the Win2K registry under HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\NetWare\NDSConnections to get the drives to map to the Win2008 box on login through the Novell client even though I manually mapped them specifying reconnect on logon. These are the same drives using the same Novell account with the same context. The drives do map successfully on a first RDP logon but the service, which is also running under the associated domain account can't "see" the paths. The service was restarted after the RDP signon so it would look for the drives after they connect. Also, when the box is rebooted those Registry modifications under NDSConnections disappear.
Does anyone have any ideas?
