Hi guys,

We have a WD 4 TB which we use to save some data on... Unfortunately, after I bought it, I realised you can only sync it with AD if you have less than 32 users.... So, as it is, this NAS device is not joined to the domain, because we can sync any users or rights etc.

We created one user called USER with default password as PASSWORD.

So if users do access that device over the network, for example \\\files
It will prompt them for a username and password, on which they enter USER and PASSWORD and voila!

My question is... is there ANYWAY one can add a registry entry, to automatically enter the username and password when you access \\\***

There is no way on the NAS device to remove authentication, already check... :(
