Mapped drive doesn't remember user/password


P

Per Hagstrom

Have problems mapping a drive.

Running WinXP Pro with all the latest Win Updates.
I'm joined to a domain that requires you to change password regulary.
I have a server (win2003) which is not part of the domain where I need to
map a drive with a different username/password.

I mapped the drive, via "Tools - Map Network Drive...", changed the
user/password, by clicking "different user name", and then check the box
"Reconnect at logon".

When I reboot it does try to reconnect, but not with the different username
I entered, so I'm denied access to the mapped drive.

Why does it not remember the different username/password I entered?

Hope there is a good fix/workaround?!

TIA!!

Try using a login script instead:

net use x:: \\computername\sharename password /user:computername\username
/persistent:no

Doug,

Thanks, that workaround should work well! :)

So what about the way I was trying to make it work? Is that by "design"
(with a good reason behind it?) or is it a bug, that might get fixed?

Thanks again!
