Accessing Server 2008 R2 from Local Network
Posted on 2012-03-30
I have a Server 2008 R2 Standard box that is in a local network with a Win 7 machine. Due to Remote Desktop grace period expiration, I had to do some reconfiguring of server, during which the Administrator password to the server was changed.
Now, the Win 7 machine is unable to access the server over the local network connection (Remote Desktop Connection still works though), which I believe is due to it having saved old credentials for the server, i.e. the old Administrator password.
When trying to connect from the Win 7 PC to the Server, it gives the error:
Windows cannot access \\SERVERNAME\foldername
How can I force it to prompt for new credentials instead of simply denying the connection?
