Our Techs have access to a network share, but the end users do not.  When the tech sits down at a user's computer they currently log off and on as themselves to access the share.  

How can they supply their own credientials for the share while another user is logged on?

From a command prompt:

net use driveletter: \\computername\share /user:domainname\username should do the trick for you.  If the share is already mapped using credentials, replace the computername with its IP address.

That should do the trick for you.

" If the share is already mapped using credentials" should read: "If a share is already mapped using the credentials of the locally logged on user, and you want to use alternate credentials"

If the share is already mapped, try to do a "net use" and see the mapping, then do a "net use X (driveletter) /delete.
then you will be able to remap it using the creds you need.
