You might want to provide some more background on what your computer is trying to do. Connecting to a disabled server doesn't explain what kind of connection, how do you know this is happening, etc. –  Martín Marconcini Jun 11 '12 at 13:53

My guess would be that there is a login item for the dead server. To Remove it access Systems preferences via:

-> System Preferences -> Users & Groups -> Choose your user -> Login items ->

Select the Dead Server and press "-" to remove it.

Login Items

This worked for me. A slightly different variant I had was, I had a folder on a remote server (that was no longer connected) in my Favorites column on Finder, so instead of FS showing up in the example above, I had a folder called "My_Photos" that I needed to remove. –  bradleybossard Jan 30 at 17:32

On newer Mac hardware, you may also get this from the Remote Disk settings. You can fix this by unchecking the Remote Disk box in the Finder Favorites under devices.
