I've setup a simple Ubuntu 10.04 file server and want to have a handful of users attach from windows machine to a Shared drive and to private Home directories on a per machine basis.
I've got this all setup and have mapped the drives within windows (Shared = Z:, Home = H:) on one of the machines and everything works fine. However when I restart the user machine they are still able to access the shared drive, but when trying to open their Home drive I get the error,
An error occured while reconnecting H: to \\Server01\homes Microsoft Window Network: The network name cannot be found. This connection has not been restore
If I then disconnect from the Home and Shared drive and reconnect then everything work fine, until I have to reboot the machine again!
Any ideas why this is happening and how I can get round it?
OK so I've made a little progress. If instead of mapping to the \Server01\homes directory I map to the \Server01\username directory, then I don't get the error message like before. However it does say:
Incorrect password or unknown username for: \\Server01\username
If I enter the exact same password as before then I connect fine, but I'd rather not have to force my users to enter a password each time the machine is started.
