Hello,
I get the following error when I try to map to a shared drive on a device just stood up. "The mapped network drive could not be created because the following error has occurred: The specified network name is no longer available." Not a permissions issue as other Admins in the same security group can successfully map.
Thanks

Can you map via I.P address rather than UNC (\\computer name\share) ?
Can you ping the name of the computer ?
Have a look at your Windows Eventlogs for errors (eventvwr)
