Problem to have mapped drive

Hi,
within the relevant 2003 server, I expect to have one mapped drive like

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/40211031/t859.png

and I'm able to ping the server like

C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator>ping GT-KNB04

but I cannot create the relevant mapped drive below

Is there any other way to create one mapped drive, shown above, as the current server is not attached to one domain within the network?

You have the slashes the wrong way around. You need to map the drive using this as the path: \\GT-KNB04\ora

You can try and browse to this directly in Windows Explorer to test before attempting to map the drive.

Also ensure that the 'ora' share has actually been created with the correct permissions on the GT-KNB04 machine.
