Default Mapped network drive not reconnecting


I have two W2K3 servers SRVA and SRVB, both running in Workgroup mode, in
different Workgroups WGA and WGB respectively.

USERA on SRVA maps drive X to a share on SRVB, checks "Reconnect at Logon"
and specifies to login as a different userid. Gets prompt for userid and
password, enters USERB (defined on SRVB) and password, and the drive is
then mapped and accessible.

When USERA logs off/on, drive X appears to get mapped, but when the drive is
accessed, the user is again prompted for userid and password.

How can I prevent the need to supply the userid and password on first access
after a login?

Would putting both servers in the same Workgroup help?

This is a really pressing problem, and any help would be appreciated...

The conventional way is to simply create a user account on SRVB called USERA
with the same password used for the corresponding account on SRVA. If you
really want to map the drive using an account other than the logged on user,
create a logon script:

net use x: \\SRVB\sharename /user:SRVB\USERB password <enter>

That's what I had thought. But with W2K3 in WG mode, where do I put logon
scripts? All the examples assume to use Group Policy, etc...

You can simply put it in the user's Startup folder.
