Maintain network connectivity on shutdown?

    Hello, we have added a script to run at Windows shutdown and in testing it
    seems to at least run, but the problem is part of the script process that
    needs to access a server on our network fails because it appears that network
    connectivity has been dropped at this point in the shutdown process. Is there
    any way to set it so that network connectivity is retained on shutdown? For
    example, if there is still at least IP connectivity (but the WINS service has
    been shutdown), then could we run something on a command line to invoke the
    network resource? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Are you running this as a GPO "Shutdown" script? GPO Shutdown scripts
    are 'supposed' to run before network connections are deleted.

    Hi John,

    Thanks for your reply. Yes, this is a GPO "Shutdown" script. Since you have
    confirmed that network connectivity "should" still be available when the
    script runs, we are going to have the script generate a log to hopefully give
    us an idea of where and what exactly is failing. Thanks again for your reply.
