SharePoint and mapped drive

Hi,

We recently migrated all the  workstations to the domain.

We have a windows 2008 r2 server and windows 7 x64 laptops

Some of the users are using a map drive to Thoughtbus hosted SharePoint  
(
https://domain.thoughtbus.com), we are able to

save the credentials, but as soon as we log off and log back in the drive doesn't get

connected and we need to re enter the password.

I check under credential manager and the credentials for the mapped drive are still there.

I know that for Terminal services we need to modify Group Policy Credentials delegations

in order for the user to be able to save credentials

any ideas why we need to enter the password every single time we need to

connect to the sharepoint drive, it was working fine before we added to the domain

In Internet Explorer, go to Tools – Internet Options –> Security tab –> Select Local intranet –> click the Sites button –> click the Advanced button-> Enter the sharepoint site URL->Click add ->Click Close

Click the OK button in the open widows to complete the configuration.
Click the Custom Level button at the bottom of the Security tab – scroll all the way down to the bottom and make sure “Automatic logon only in Intranet zone” is selected – click the OK button – click the OK button again.

This configuration worked for me when i was having trouble with a sharepoint site asking me for credentials repeatedly. NOt sure if this could solve ur trouble. Its worth a try though.

HERE ARE THE STEPS: <br /><br />To resolve this issue, here are the steps:<br /><br /> <br /><br />1. The Windows 'Credential Manager' must have the Internet address (in this case yourdomain.com<br /> <br />') along with the Thoughtbus username and password stored in a 'Windows Credential'.<br /><br />2. A registry entry needs to be updated so that the WebClient service will use the above credential when you connect to the SharePoint site as a 'file share' or 'network location' or via Office apps (as per http://support.microsoft.c<wbr />om/kb/9432<wbr />80<br /> <br />) -- here's how to do this:<br /><br />    Click Start, type regedit in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER.<br />    Locate and then click the following registry subkey:<br />    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\<wbr />CurrentCon<wbr />trolSet\Se<wbr />rvices\Web<wbr />Client\Par<wbr />ameters<br />    On the Edit menu, point to New, and then click Multi-String Value.<br />    Type AuthForwardServerList, and then press ENTER.<br />    On the Edit menu, click Modify.<br />    In the Value data box, type the URL of the server that hosts the Web share (in this case yourdomain.com<br />     <br />    '), and then click OK.<br />    Exit Registry Editor.<br /><br />3. After updating the registry or the Credential Manager, the 'WebClient' service on the PC needs to be restarted. (Alternatively the PC could be rebooted.)<br /><br />4. Connect to the SharePoint site as 'https://yourdomain.com<br /> <br />' (not using the '\\' notation with '@ssl')
