Cannot connect to a network share
Posted on 2013-02-05
I have a user who is having difficulty mapping to a network share. The permissions are correct as I can map to the network drive using his credentials with no issues on a different computer.
This seems to be isolated to the machine and I'm not exactly sure where to look. This doesn't seem to be a networking issue as much as it seems to be a windows 7 holding on to incorrect credentials somewhere on the machine. When I try to map a drive from this particular laptop, it just asks for credentials for the share over and over again as if it's an incorrect password. However, doing it from my laptop, no issues with the same user account.
The user is able to ping the server he is trying to connect to and also do a successful tracert to it. There doesn't seem to be any loss of communication.
