The online Help file NTCMDS.HLP included with Windows NT 3.1 contains incorrect information regarding NET CONFIG SERVER /AUTODISCONNECT:TIME:

NET CONFIG SERVER /AUTODISCONNECT:TIME sets the maximum number of minutes a user's session can be inactive before it is disconnected. You can specify -1 to never disconnect. The range is -1-65535 minutes; the default is -1.

The default value for AutoDisconnect is 15, not -1 as stated in Help.

WARNING: When you run NET CONFIG SERVER (or NET CONFIG SRV), server related parameters that are normally autoconfigured each time you boot (for example, maxworkitems)are permanently set in the registry to whatever values Windows NT is currently using. These parameters will continue to override the defaults until you change them in the registry. You cannot change the values by running Control Panel, choosing Server, and then choosing Configure. Consequently, if you add or remove memory, or change the server size setting (minimize/balance/maximize), you will not get the benefit of server autoconfiguration.
