I use my laptop outside of the office at work, however sometimes I need to come into the office to get access to shared network drives. We have a batch file for enabling the drives but when I run them I get an error.
Batch File -->
echo Deleting network drives, please wait...
net use * /d /y
echo Mapping X Drive, please wait...
net use x: \\hq.autocab.com\public\files autocab2010 /USER:HQAUTOCAB\user.name
echo Mapping S Drive, please wait...
net use s: \\hq.autocab.com\public\software
echo Mapping M Drive, please wait
net use m: \\hq.autocab.com\public\mapping
Forget the batch file for now. What happens when you try to map a drive manually?
I take it the laptop is on the same network as the server holding the files you need.
Right-click My Computer, go to Map Drive.
put in the folder path.
Click on "Connect using a different user name"
User would be domainname\username and put in the password.
Does that work?
The server is on a work based domain, my laptop is not part of the domain as I spend most of my time outside of the office. Therefore I am trying to stay in the workgroup rather than joining the domain.
I will try the 'Connect using a different user name' approach and see what happens.
