Prompting for creds

Hi,

We have a server on our network which only certain people can access via running a \\servername\foldername command. If you cannot access it, it seems like sometimes it prompts you to enter the credentials of an administrator to access the server. Othertimes, it doesnt give you that option if you are not logged in as a domain admin and it just says you dont have permission and doesnt give you the opportunity to put in your credentials.

Is there some way I can set it to always prompt, so that if I'm logged in as a non-admin I can just enter my creds and access it? thanks.

Hi
That isn't a normal situation to use another account for a share, but you can manage this using an connection script in DOS
net use driveletter: \\server\share /user:domain\username
the script will wait for your password
