Problem to have mapped drive

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


and I'm able to ping the server like

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

Pinging GT-KNB04 [] with 32 bytes of data:

Reply from bytes=32 time<1ms TTL=128
Reply from bytes=32 time<1ms TTL=128
Reply from bytes=32 time<1ms TTL=128
Reply from bytes=32 time<1ms TTL=128

Ping statistics for
    Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 4, Lost = 0 (0% loss),
Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
    Minimum = 0ms, Maximum = 0ms, Average = 0ms

Open in new window

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?

VB ITSSpecialist ConsultantCommented:
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.
