Windows Server 2003 R2 Incorrect Password when browsing shared folders RRS feed

  • Question

  • Everything worked last night.

    Everything is working for every computer except one now.  That one computer (out of 20) is saying that credentials are incorrect when trying to browse shared folders on one of our servers (win 2003 r2)  the other server (2008) is able to be browsed fine.  I am able to connect using RDP to the server from the affected laptop using the credentials that are supposedly incorrect when trying to browse (or map a network drive).  I have searched the internet for about an hour and not found any fix.  Thanks in advance.

    I'm assuming this is a security issue rather than a networking issue but no settings have changed.

  • Hi,

    Firstly, please let us know the following:

    1. What is the network environment, domain or workgroup?

    2. What is the edition of Windows of this laptop?

    3. What kind of credential do you use? Are all the credentials same?

    4. Is the credential stored in this laptop? Or, you manually enter the credential every time.

    If the issue does not occur previously, you can try to perform a system restore for this laptop and see how it works.

    If system restore cannot help and the credential is stored in this laptop, you can go to credential manager, remove the stored credential and test the issue again.

    Hope this helps.
