Users are having problems connecting to a shared folder on serverA, nothing has changed such as time, server or client names, accounts. The share has been working for 2 years as a mapped drive: N:\\serverA\apps with a login script. Now I cannot map at all not even as Administrator. What is strange is that some users can connect. All Outlook users are getting mail from this server and I can ping it. The only thing that has changed is Group Shield 6.0 was installed a few weeks ago on this server. Here are the errors the clients get:

?Microsoft Windows Network: The local device name is already in use.?
?The mapped network drive could not be created because the following error has occurred: Logon failure: the target account name is in correct?

Here are the errors ServerA gets:

When I look in the Event viewer of this serverA I see the following:

In Application Log:

I don't mean to sound stupid, but have you tried rebooting. I have seen on several servers, where it will hold "stale" connections, and thus use up the number of connections allowed. I know this sounds simple, but I did not see in your question anything about rebooting. Hope this helps.
