I have run into a very odd situation and have not been able to sort it out.  This is a new 2008 R2 install in workgroup role.  I can map shares w/ perms for Everyone on multiple computers.  I want to create a protected share for two users.  I've tried various methods of assigning rights to the share for two users, user1 and user2, to gain access.  When I map the share on a workstation (XP Pro) I have no problem doing it for the first workstation.  If I try to repeat that on a second workstation I get an error saying that the share is already mapped with a username and password and cannot create it, have to disconnect the first share.  I've even tried it with just one user and get the same error

The odd thing is I just did something similar on a new 2008 Foundation machine in workgroup mode and had no problems mapping the share on multiple computers

It turns out that MS still does the cal thing for server (not RDP) on a honor basis.  The suggestion was good but not the answer so I am not awarding any points (I guess).  Granted I did post the symptom and not the actual error message.  This is the MS KB about the issue - another arcane undocumented "feature" - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/938120
