A server that I am trying to attach to keeps giving me the logon prompt whenever I select the mapped drive from my computer to  the server.  I have established an account with the appropriate user name and password on the server and I connect right away when I enter the password at the login prompt.  The problem is that I need attach to the server automatically in order to run an application that uses the mapped drive.

    start>run>control keymgr.dll

    IS there anything listed for this server? If so, kill it......

    Do I run this on the server or the client?

    The server was listed.  I removed it and had no trouble after that. Thanks!
