XP client Share keeps on prompting for user name and pw,

Last Modified: 2012-05-09
I have a Windows 2008 R2 Domain controller and several xp workstations. All are joined to the Domain. On some of the XP Clients, after a shared drive on the server is mapped with the re-connect box checked. The maps remain, but when the user tries to open the share, they are prompted for a user name and pw. The login should be authenticated by the Original user login to the account.
