I've recently upgraded to Windows 10 and also some new windows 10 computers.  Networked drives that reside on Windows server 2012 intermittently disconnect.  When I attempt to reconnect by double clicking drive, i receive error indicating "The local device name is already in use. This connection has not been restored."  

 

Can anyone help with is problem?

What version of server 2012 do you have and how many client licenses do you have?  How many pcs connecting to the server?

Server 2012 Standard, 15 Client Access licenses, 10 computer of which never more than 8 are on at the same time.  Note: that even-though we have 15 licenses I don't believe there is a places to indicate that in Server 2012.

See post number 24 in this thread on Spiceworks.com. This has actually been an issue since Windows 8, it deals with how windows applies group policy objects in the backround after the user has logged on. I have also see an issue where the drive is mapped locally using "reconnect at Sign on" causing an issue. You can also removed the mapped drive policy and change to desktop shortcuts that link directly to the server IE \\servername\department name\department folder\.

Might want to look at the servers event viewer logs for connection/licensing errors to see if there are other clues to isolate the issue.

After readingthe  Spiceworks thread I checked the group policy on the Server and it does not have the preferences path under User Configuration and I don't see a entry for drive under windows settings. My screen shot is attached. Am I in the right place?

Also, in the event log there is an error that may have relevance: 

 

"A fatal alert was generated and sent to the remote endpoint. This may result in termination of the connection. The TLS protocol defined fatal error code is 10. The Windows SChannel error state is 1203."

 

I'm trying to research it now.

There is no script.  The drives were mapped from the workstation using windows explorer "map network drive" and set to reconnect at logon.
