Can server login credentials be migrated between computers?

Specs: Windows 7
Setting up a new user account on a Windows 7 Home Premium system. Need to map network drive to reach a remote server. Login credentials for the server are not available. Can I migrate UN & PW from a currently connected computer to the new system somehow?

No. That would be an obvious security breach. If you don't have authority to the remote server you shouldn't try to access it. It's illegal and could land you in jail.

If the credentials were saved on the existing account, check in the Credential Manager in the control panel if it is stored in the Windows Vault.

Sounds kinda fishy to me. Why can't you ask the Admin of that server for the logon credentials?
