User Unable to access mapped network drive via CMD, works in explorer RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We have some users who all have the same drive letter mapped to the same shared folder on a 2008 R2 File Server. Some, not all users, suddenly cannot access this mapped drive via the CMD prompt even though it's running as the same user context (not run as).

    So they open a normal end user CMD, type S: and it returns the error "Access Denied" but they can access the drive via explorer and have read/write access to the share. This has been working previously and nothing has changed in our environment in terms of GPO's or share permissions.

    All systems are Win 7 Ent X64.

    Thanks

  • Hi,

    This makes me think about an old Windows Vista/7 and Windows 2008 R2 reported issues.

    Have you tried use command prompt re- map the drive? Remove credentials from credential manager and re-map it with CMD.

    net use //server/share Z: /persistent:yes

    If the issue still persists, try old workaround and see if it works, configure the EnableLinkedConnections registry value. This value enables Windows Vista and Windows 7 to share network connections between the filtered access token.

    Navigate to HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System

    Create a DWORD value named EnableLinkedConnections and set it to 1

    Reboot the computer.

  • HI,

    The drives are mapped manually by the users when they join the company and they are mapped persistently.

    I've tried manually mapping the same share to another drive letter but the problem still exists. The users can access other shares though.

    Turning off Sync Centre is not an option as we use folder redirection/offline files.

    Thanks

  • You can try on a test workstation, at least you'd have a clear direction for further troubleshooting.

  • I have tried on my machine and it works without issue. It is also working for some members of this particular team but for some it is not, however the machine should all be setup in the same way.

    Thanks
