Home Dir times out

One last question. I have roaming profiles set up on my domain controller running windows 2000 adv. server. If I login to the domain with one of my Win2K Pro clients everything works fine. If I have been logged in for a while my home folder will get an red X through it and I will have to click on it multiple times before it stoppes giving me the message "The drive is not accessable". Also when I log off after being logged on for a while it will come up with the error "Network Path not valid" when saving my profile on the server. Any ideas?

    Reading the last couple of posts here in the forums, I can say only two things:

    - Try replacing the NIC on either machine (those involved in the problem), you might have a jabbering NIC, or a bad cable even.
    - Try searching in the Microsoft Knowledgebase (using the error messages and the codes from the Eventvwr... http://support.microsoft.com/search )

    It sounds to me you have a simple network problem resulting in symptoms that seem to point to other causes... your error messages are so general they could have a lot of different causes but almost always indicate a network problem. (server service not being started, faulty NIC, wrong client network config.)
