The issue I am having is that some of the mapped network drives on our network are randomly not remapping.  The most common is the home directory.  I have it set under active directory (oh yeah I am running a windows server 2008 network with mostly Win 7 and a few XP and vista machines) for each user under the profile tab--> home folder connect: H: to \\server\share\folder    Any ideas what would cause these to not map on random?  I cannot think of anything that is happening that fits with the problems, we have had some power outages that have dropped the servers but the machines have been back up and running since then.

Did you notice any errors in the event log of the local machine about the profile not loading?

hmm... didn't check that.   I'll have to keep an eye out for that next time it happens.

Do you have the "Always wait for network at computer startup and logon" GPO enabled? If not try to enable it and see if it helps with your issues. When you refer to not remapping, are they not remapping on startup, or are they just randomly dropping and then not remapping?

No its more that they are not there in the morning after startup, I have not had any complaints of them just dropping in the middle of the day.
