On most of the machines in our environment, when a technician is logged into the local Administrator account, they are able to map to a network share without being prompted to enter additional credentials.  However, on a small subset of machines, doing so requires that they enter in credentials of an account in our Domain (like their own AD credentials).

What about our machine or AD configuration would allow the local Administrator account to be able to map a network drive without requiring credentials of an AD account?  We would actually like to enable this behavior on all machines.

Thanks.  Greg.

p.s we are on Windows 10 Pro on the workstations and Windows Server 2012 on the Domain Controller
