Greeting,

I can map the drive of windows 2008 server by Administrator account, but can't do so as another user which belongs to administrators group. Anyone knows the reason?

Thanks.

The windows 2008 server is served as a web server and not a network drive.

The problem is the users can't map the drive to the windows 2008 server except the administrator(not administrators group).
