NAS drive asking for password when connecting

Hi,

I have a buffalo terastation pro NAS drive, it is connected to our domain. When I try to map a shared drive or open the NAS share via the run command using the NAME of the drive as opposed to the IP address, it asks me for a password. This is highly annoying.

When I browse to it by the IP address of the device there are no problems. This was working as normal until I rebooted it.

Any ideas?

To solve this:

Create a policy on the Server that automatically map the drive via the Buffalo's IP address.
