XP to 2008 R2 mapped drive not accepting stored credentials.


I have a Windows XP workstation that is a member of a domain. I am mapping a drive to a Server 2008 R2 machine that is a member of that same domain. I have stored the credentials in the mapped drive settings. I have retried this a few times and know for sure that I have the correct credentials. When I reboot the machine, the first time I attempt to connect to the mapped drive it pops up a dialogue box that states and unknown account or incorrect password is stored. If I enter the same password as is stored and make no changes to the account info (domain\username) I can connect and use the drive throughout the day with no problem. Once I reboot, I have the same issue again. I have verified the DNS server settings on the workstation are correct. Just starting to look into this now, but figured I'd post here as a head start.

Did you have any GPO configured for drive mapping? Please check your GPO to ensure there is no setting that is overriding your manual settings.

I'll be onsite again tomorrow and check into this. I just took over from another admin, so quite possible.
