Windows10 64-bit, domain environment, mapping network drive, once restarted, mapping will disappear

1.Try to check the option of "Reconnect at login", which is invalid;

2.A red cross appears on the network drive after restarting. After double-clicking, you need to enter the user name and password again to enter. Click Add, and then enter the IP, user, and password. Select "window login credentials" as the credential type. Restart the server after setting. invalid

But it still doesn't work. After restarting, it is still red cross.


Just tested using the win7 system to map the same path. It is feasible to restart the computer


Under win10 system, non-domain administrator logs in, but the domain user has joined the management group. Is it caused by permissions or policies?

    Hello

    Thank you for your question and reaching out. I can understand you are having query\issues related to Network drive disappears after reboot.

    It happens frequently that the network is already set up for the system but is not yet ready to connect and effectively map the drive. Consequently, it displays when you attempt again, indicating that it is already mapped.

    1. Enable the policy: "Always wait for the network at computer startup and logon" located under Computer Configuration -- Policies -- Administrative Templates -- System -- Logon. This might resolve your drive mapping issue.
    2. Try to Map drive with different Drive letter.
