accessing a shared drive over the net but the mapped drive are dosconnecting
after being idle for x minutes. it will only reconnect when you click the
drive but would not reconnect on logon. i chance upon this solution on these
net use x:\\server\share /persistent:no

Where is logon script located

By default, on Windows NT 3.x and 4.0 DC and workstations, the
%SystemRoot%\System32\Repl\Import\Scripts folder is shared as NETLOGON for
saving logon script. On Windows 2000/2003 servers, the
%SystemRoot%\Sysvol\Sysvol\domainname\Scripts folder is shared as NETLOGON.
On Windows 2000/XP workstation, the default location for local logon scripts
is the %Systemroot%\System32\Repl\Imports\Scripts folder. The
%Systemroot%\System32\Repl\Imports\Scripts folder is not created on a new
installation of Windows. Therefore, the
%SystemRoot%\System32\Repl\Imports\Scripts folder must be created and shared
out with the share name netlogon.
