Mapping Drives RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Hi,

    I have a Windows 7 Pro workstation that I tried to map a drive to a Share on a Windows Server 2008 R2. The first time I tried it said access denied which was because I forgot to set the permissions. I gave the account access to the share with full control. Now I still can't get access to the share with that particular user account. I have tried on a different Windows 7 workstation and an Windows XP workstation without any trouble.

    It seems like the Windows 7 Pro workstation remembered that I didn't have access the first time I tried to access the share and now it won't even look at the permission anymore even though I have permission to the share now.

    Has anybody had this or know how to resolve the problem?

    Thanks in advance!

    Is this a domain environment ? are both client and server domain member hosts ? have we logon client with this particular user account at this problematic computer ? Have we tried with logoff and logon again ?

  • Hi Tiger,

    Yes the machines are on the same domain. I'm trying to map to a share on the server from a workstation.

    Yes I tried to log off and back on. I then rebooted the to double check.

    I double checked the permissions to the share and made sure I didn't make a mistake.

    Thanks for your help!

    We should assign domain name in UPN formats when input credential form a non domain joined computer. Could you try again and see how is going:
