Drive map without password RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I saw that Microsoft grey out the option of mapping drive with a password.
    However, I need to map a drive with password.

    I don't care if the user will logon to his computer, and the drive map will be disconnected, and only after he will click on it,
    a windows authentication popup will appear.

    I have a group policy with regular drive (without credential) that works fine.
    but the drive map which need to be map with password, does not appear in the user's computer.

    In the group policy result I recevice on this specific drive map: 0x80070056
    And in the event viewer of the computer I receive the following error:
    The user 'Y:' preference item in the 'DriveMap - FileTransfer {DED67FCA-5FE1-4DC8-AC76-A3E8BABD4267}' Group Policy object did not apply because it failed with error code '0x80070056 The specified network password is not correct.' This error was suppressed

    When I try to access to the path which I try to map from the user's computer, a windows authentication popup appears, and it works fine.

    any ideas?
