Consider the following scenario. On a Microsoft Windows 2000-based computer, you use a Universal Naming Convention (UNC) name to access a file over a Server Message Block (SMB) connection. However, as soon as you close the file, the SMB connection is also closed. You expect SMB connections to remain open for more than 10 minutes after they become idle.
By default in Windows 2000, idle connections are closed immediately.
Note To modify this default behavior, install the hotfix that is described in the "Resolution" section. Then, follow the steps at the bottom of the "Resolution" section.
