Article ID: 302099 - View products that this article applies to.
This article was previously published under Q302099
A Windows 2000-based client computer that maps multiple drive connections to a single server may cause the server to allocate multiple sessions. The sessions are visible after you reboot the client computer and the drives are automatically reconnected.
This behavior occurs because the client computer does not reuse its existing connections to the server.
To resolve this problem, obtain the latest service pack for Windows 2000. For additional information, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
