Vista can't access a network drive

Postby chicagotech » Mon Nov 19, 2007 10:50 pm

Situation: The client has a mapping batch for his workgroup XP laptop to map the domain network drive. He just copied the batch file to his Vista laptop. When local local computer and runs the mapping batch file, it maps the network drive. However, when he tries to access it, he receives cannot access H drive message.

Resolution: In XP, if you logon a local computer using a user which is the same domain username, you can access the network drive, but that may not be the same in vista. What you may need to do is using domain credentials, for example use this command line to map: net use h: \\servername\username /u:domainname\username.
