    We have a newly installed SBS 2003 and XP Pro workstations.

    Clients have mapped drives to server. To be able to connect to server mapped drive, reboot is necessary each morning. Is that normal and can it be changed ???

    Also, I noticed that if a user is on the system around 10 hours, the user getting kicked out of application on server. Maybe not everytime but enough to make me think there is a 10 hour limit?

    Where do I either turn off time out or extend the hours ??

    Thanks.

    Does this happen to all users?

    Are there logon hours restrictions set for users?

    Do the client PCs sleep or hibernate overnight?

    If there is a login restriction set somewhere in the server, I need to turn it off or extend it. Where do I find it?

    On the server using "Active Directory Users and Computers" in the user properties, the account tab, Logon Hours.

    Hey Joe,

    Used didn't complain so I put on back burner. I looked at what you suggested. It's set for 24 hours login. I don't see anywhere where I can extend session time so user doesn't get logged off after about 10 or so hours. Any other ideas???

    Thanks.

    If the users are logging in using terminal services see Terminal Services Group Policy.
