My environment is as follows.
Server 2003 domain.
Xp Pro workstations sp3

The file is being shared from a XP workstation (computerB) and I am attempting to connect with another xp workstation (computerA).

The Domain admin is able to map the shares.
Users are not.

I recieve the error whether using IP or system name.

I checks share permissions and the user has read, write, change permissions on the folder.

I am recieving the following error.
"The mapped network drive could not be created because the following error has occurred.
An Extended Error has occured."

Open gpedit.msc on the computer with the share.
Navigate to Computer Config>Windows Settings>Security Settings>Local Policies>User Rights Assignment
Find the setting for "Access this computer from the Network"
The following users/groups should be listed:

Administrators
ASPNET
Backup Operators
Everyone
Power Users
Users

Make the corrections and try again.

Another thing to note - only Administrators and Power Users can share out folders, so if that machine has a user logged in then it likely doesn't have the share available.  You can check this using Net Share from a command prompt while logged into that machine as a user.

Let us know.

Thanks!

Keep in mind, that if this setting is made on a Domain Policy somewhere and only lists Administrators then it will likely change back at next policy refresh (in 90 minutes).  

You'll need to address this issue differently if that is the case.
