Network Password.

Hi.

Windows 2000 keeps asking me over and over again for my network password when it tryes to connect to a network drive.

I must enter this password, every time I restart my computer, 3 times for 3 different network drives, although Windows 2000 tells my the last password I used (which is allways the same).

Is there any way I can remove this annoying question?

Thanks,
Ophir.

Short of setting up Active Directory (which would require at least one server), then no, I don't think there is any way round this. The fact is, if you're connecting to 3 different shares you have to re-authenticate for each share--Windows 2000 doesn't know you use the same password for all 3, neither does it care. This is why things like Active Directory exist--they allow for a single central "clearing house" which handles all the authentication so it only needs to be done once.

It sounds like you are not logging on to the domain controller and that Windows 2000 is merely letting you in with its cached password that it know used to be good. Every time you try to connect to the drive it will try and contact the DC.

Hi,

If accounts and passwords are same for your Windows 2000 and the shares you connect to, the system will not prompt you. But it is not safe for you, is it?.

If you don't have a Domain Controller handling your authentication you won't get rid of that! The other systems don't know that the user/password combination is the same since the connection comes from different machines.
