mapped network drive request for password after reboot

Hallo,

after i have mapped a network drive....

net use z: \\servername\sharename /user:servername\username "password"
/persistent:yes

....and after the next reboot...the windows 2000/xp host shows the network
drive as disconnected and request for a password.

Can Windows XP or 2000 store remote Passwords without the function placed in
the Windows XP Control Pannel called "Manage Passwords" (XP)?

Not sure exactly what's causing your problem (issue with the Protected
Storage service, perhaps, at a wild guess?) but the reverse is normally the
case, it's far more difficult to prevent unwanted 'remembering' of passwords
than it is to allow it.

Hallo Ian,

I agree with your information, but a customer promise me, that he accessed a
remote storage on a Novell Server without reenter the password after logon.
The Account on the Novell Server has a blank password, but after reebot the
Windows client it will ask for Username and Password if you try to access the
drive mapping.

I think the only way to handle this problem is a Logon Script with the "use
net" command or to turn of the authentification of the CIFS Share on the
Novell Server.

I don't believe in the statement of the customer, that a persistent mapping
remember in remote passwords.

My question is wether you confirm me or is there another possibility to
store such passwords?
