I have a Windows 8 fileserver that is configured to sleep after a period of going unused, and configured to wake-on-lan. I would like to configure some of the Windows 7 systems on the network to map drives from the fileserver. That's easy enough through the standard methods.
The problem is that I while I want the mapping to persist between login sessions, I do not want to wake the fileserver every time someone logs in. I only want it to wake the server if they actually try to access the mapped drive.
When I set the drive to reconnect at logon, the mapping persists, but the fileserver is woken up on every login. If I do not set the drive to reconnect at logon, then the mapping does not persist.
Is there a way to get both of my goals?
