Drive Map with username and password
Posted on 2011-04-20
I am trying to facilitate an interface between two server on separate domains with no trust relationship. We have a VNP tunnel created between the two domains. The interface engine on my server uses a mapped drive to access a folder on the other server where it pulls text documents.
I can map the drive successfully and retrieve the documents. However when I map the drive I must provide a username and password to access the folder. I can make the mapped drive persistent, however eventually the server is logged off. The next time my server is logged onto, the drive map exists, but is disconnected and requires a username and password.
I assume that this is because the username and password I am providing for the drive map are not the same as the username and password used to log onto the server. I have tried mapping the drive using the “connect with a different user” but I get the same results.
Any help would be appreciated.
