HI,I am using windows 2003 server / XP professional clients,I have started receiving this message recently " Windows Network the local device name is already in use, this connection can not be restored" after that you can't access Map/shared drives any more, log off and log in again solve the problem temporarily but after some time (hibernate or idle system) its again pop up. I have tried remapped network drives but it has not worked... is there any thing to do with authentication or session expire?
