I have an SBS2011 domain that has several people who need access to shared drives on the server every once in awhile. I don’t want to make these particular users members of the domain (contractors). The laptops they use have Win home anyway.
I used a cmd line and typed net use x: \\servername\share /user:domainname\account password
This folder can then be accessed via a cmd line but does NOT show up in Windows. WTH?
I can map the drive using windows and after entering in the credentials it shows in windows. The problem with this is that the drive does not remain persistent even if I use net use /persistent:yes in the script. After a reboot that drive always demands they type in the creds which they always forgot and it’s a PITA.
Server is SBS2011 standard and the laptops in questions are running Win7 home premium.
