Force logon credential prompt for network resources.
Posted on 2007-04-05
We are running on a windows 2003 domain, 2 domain controllers.
I am having a problem with 1 user who is trying to access a network resource, a file on a server not in our domain. This server has a generic login that the users use to access the resource.
We have drive mappings set up using VBS scripts. This users drive shows up, but shows up as disconnected. When I try to go directly to //SERVERNAME I get an error stating username does not exist.
Now I can log off his account and log on myself and when I try to access //SERVERNAME i receive a log in box. I can then log in to the server and access the network resources.
My question is:
Is ther any way to force the log on box to appear? it appears maybe at one point he tried to sign on with incorrect credentials, or that Windows is somehow caching logon credentials for that server.
