Network drive asks for password

July 10, 2009 at 07:56:49
Specs: Windows XP

I have two computers which run a logon.bat file which adds a network drive to the computer. I use the same logon for both the computers. One computer is adding the drive while the other computer is asking for a username and password to connect to the network drive.

Can somebody help.

Both the systems i tried used windows xp.

i tried to logon the same computer with domainname\admin previlages which run the same logon.bat file which adds the network drive sucessfully. The only problem is with the domainname\myaccount.

I do have same username and same password . It could login to the system on both. But during logon it will run a script which adds a network drive. One system adds the network drive sucessfully but it does not add on the other computer.

post the script that works and the one that doesn't

review the share properties on both shared to make sure the one that does not work matches the one that does. should be everyone with full control and nothing else.

NET TIME \\server01 /set /yes
NET USE F: \\server01\Shared /PERSISTENT:yes


The above is the bat code that will run on every logon.

I checked the properties and they are same.

You run the same script on both machines?
both wksts are called server01?

The work stations are different. the script will add the shared drive from server01 and it will adjust time to the server01 time.

the user is an active directory user.

Do you see the problem machine in AD under computers?

Same user account to logon to the domain? That is not a good plan. No ability to audit or trace changes.

Review the share user/group assignment.

Usually being asked for a password to access a share means you are in peer to peer mode with the client and not an active directory user or pc.

Yes i find computer in AD and also the user in AD. I have also created a different user for that system and it works.

But previously it used to be working without asking the password but it is just doing it today.
