to restore connection enter password

By hotrodgers ·
i have upgraded a users pc from win 98 to win 2k professional...my problem is when booting up the server drive i have mapped (logged on as her) i have to enter my password to get it restored. i have unmapped and remapped while i am logged on as herand it still will only restore connection to map drive with my admin password...she has rights to map her own drives...i have never run into this before with any user..all other pc's have been full installations and not upgrades, so i don't know if that has something to do with it or not...any suggestions on how i can get it to know when she logs in to restore the mapped drive to the server without having to put my password in?
thanks

You don't mention what OS the server is running.

Also, is this a workgroup or domain.

Answer these questions and we should be able to solve your problem.

You may like to try clicking no when it asks you to remap drives. Then on reboot it should just map the drives which are in the logon script with no problems.

Yo could also add a line like the following before each line that maps a drive in the logon script - it stops accounts being locked out by the PC trying to restore connections with bad cached credentials......

net use x: /delete

If the problem is that you have to enter a password, then the solution is to make sure that the user has access to the shared resource.
Every user that tries to connect to a shared resource has to have rights. When you log on to windows 2K you havea username and password. If this is only a local account, then the server must have an account that matches this username and password. If this is not a local account that the server has to be part of the same domain.
Rerdless of what type of account the user is using, the username must have Permission to access the resource. There are 2 types of permissions, 1. Share level, 2. File level. Share lever permissions you can access in the share properteis, and file level in the file properties. You access both by right clicking on a folder/share (File level is called plain Security, while Share level is called permissions).
If you don't have to enter a username and password when Windows 2K Pro starts up change that in Control Panle.

Can this user log onto one of the other PC's in the domain and map the drive without using the administrator credentials.

This will rule out a possible problem with the users account and then you can concentrate on the PC. Likewise, can you get another normal user to log onto the PC with the problem and see if they can map the drive.
