Network Drive permissions

I have a spare laptop, on the domain, that will not connect to a Shared network drive, no matter which user is trying to access. Is it possible to give the laptop itself access or permissions? I have tried to login with the local admin account, but it still gives me "S:\\ Access is Denied".

Open cmd.exe and type NET USE Z: \\server\folder and enter.

What error number do you get?

That error says that the Network Name cannot be found.

I suggest you unjoin from the domain, restart and join again. See if that helps.

did not work. Is it possible to add logon scripts to a computer?

Login scripts will not work if the NET USE command does not work.

If re-joining the domain did not work and NET USE does not work, then something else has gone wrong.

Make sure (Network Properties) that Network Discovery and File and Print Sharing are both ON. Make sure Homegroup is OFF.

Look in the properties of the network card and make sure Client For Microsoft networks is installed and appears to be working

i would also flushdns and check to make sure you can ping the server.

also antivirus or local firewall might be causing this.

I can ping the server, firewall and antivirus are off. Network Discovery and File Sharing- ON. Homegroup-OFF. Client for Microsoft Network is working.

It is not finding the network folder (as opposed to finding it and not having permission).

So with all you have done, then the next step is a Windows 7 Repair Install. Here is a Seven Forums Tutorial with the steps to do that. You need the Windows 7 DVD.
