intermittent "tree or server not found"

I'm having a bizzare problem with a client losing the connection to the
server. I have a simple LAN with a single Netware 6.5 SP3 server with
about 25 clients. Only one of these clients, running Windows 2003 Server
(SP1) with Client 4.91 SP2 (acting as Terminal Server) loses the
connection to the server typically over the weekend. All would be well for
a couple of days and than the users call to report that they cannot login.

When this happens, trying to login returns a "Tree or server not found"
error. The only way to get things back to normal is to reboot the client.
I have tried uninsalling the NetWare Client and reinstalling the latest
version, doing a "Repair local DR database" on the server but the problem
persists.

As I said, the only client computer on the LAN experiencing this problem
is the Terminal Server. Pinging the NetWare server when this problem
occurs works fine. All was well for a couple of years now, the only thing
I can recall doing on the client was installing Microsoft updates. I am
trying to avoid having to rebuild it, so if anyone has any suggestions it
would be most welcome.

Re: intermittent "tree or server not found"

Did you check that the LAN card of the server doesn't "go to sleep"?
Does it still work if, for instance, you keep a ping to the server IP
address running over the week-end?
