Network drive unavailableLocked
I need to maintain a mapped network drive between two machines on a local network. These 2 machines are part of an AD domain but I do not want to use domain account for the mapped network drive. I can explain but I MUST user local user accounts. Here is the command I issue from computer 2 (comp2):
NET USE H: \\COMP1\c$ /user:comp1\administrator /persistent:yes
It prompts for the admin password for computer 1. I enter the password and all is well. This drive mapping will work forever UNTIL I reboot. Once the reboot happens, the network drive is UNAVAILABLE. I cannot access the drive. Issueing a NET USE command shows the drive as unavailable. The only thing I can do is re-map the drive. Interestingly I do not have to delete the drive mapping before remapping it. It is very important I get this fixed since this is a scenario I need to meet for over 1300 computers in 650 remote locations.
