Hi,

 

We have windows server 2012 R2

 

On the HP dashboard I can set up user accounts on the server.

 

On a workstation pc, I have mapped drives to the server and want to disconnect them and recreate the mapped drives again so as to login to the server using one of the other user accounts I created on the server dashboard.

 

Problem is when I disconnect the mapped drives on the workstation pc, restart the workstation and recreate the mapped drives to the server, the mapped drive connects immediately without requiring any username or password to the server.

 

If that makes sense.

 

Thanks

Yes it does, probably using Group Policy. As you've been told before, it's time to get an expert to help you with your business IT requirements.

If it's on an Active Directory domain, it's highly likely doing that by design. Why would you login as one user but mount shares as another?

 

This being said, if you're asking very basic questions like this, it is probably time to look at someone to help you. Or at the very least go and do a course to learn about the basics. I go and see businesses on a weekly basis who has someone managing their IT who "thinks" they know what they're doing, until something fails and all the data is lost or they get hit by an attack of some sort. IT isn't really something that can be managed-ish anymore, if your business is at the level where you're running AD with multiple workstations, it is highly irresponsible to not have someone who knows what they're doing sorting this type of thing out.

When I find the right person who can answer basic IT questions I'll let you know.

 

In the meantime what course do you recommend.

If you let us know where you are we could maybe recommend a local IT services provider? I'm guessing either Welly or Chch based on previous posts about Cable?

 

With regards to training the starting place would be the Microsoft courses that lead towards the MCSA 2012 certification. Each component exam of the MCSA has a matching official training course

 

  • Exam 70-410/Course 20410D Installing and Configuring Windows Server 2012
  • Exam 70-411/Course 20411D Administering Windows Server 2012
  • Exam 70-412/Course 20412D Configuring Advanced Windows Server 2012

You don't need to sit them in any particular order, but I'd suggest starting with 411. Each course can be done via a MS training partner such as Ace or Auldhouse

 

http://www.auldhouse.co.nz/courses-schedules/vendors/microsoft-technical/windows-server/administering-windows-server-2012

 

https://www.ace.co.nz/20411D

 

Disclaimer: Other than being Microsoft certified myself, I have no connection to Microsoft or any of it's authorized training partners yadda yadda.

You don't mention if the PC is domain joined or not, if the system is running on a workgroup then the steps below should work.

 

If you are running a domain, the user will be authenticated against the domain when they log into the computer, thus allowing mapped drives to happen without entering in user details.

 

Did you know there is a tick box for mapping a drive that allows you to use different credentials?

 

#######################################

 

This is assuming you are running Windows 7 on the PC:

 

You can remove the authenticated credentials from:

 

Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\User Accounts

 

click the username 

 

     

  1. To the left you will see Manage your credentials.  From that select the share name and remove

    Once the above is done, delete using net use
  2. Start > Run > cmd > net use * /DELETE

Hi

 

Thanks for those suggestions. I will look into those courses.

 

I live in Christchurch.

 

No its not a domain setup and PCs are windows 10

 

In the meantime I have got webroot running and we are also using the paid version of storage craft, which is now backing up our server and pcs so that's something.

If it is Windows 10, then the "net use" command should still work.

 

Normally any cached network connections are deleted upon reboot of the PC.  Windows 10 has fast boot enabled by default (we disable this on our systems) so try a RESTART instead (this will perform a cold boot of the PC)

I looked into the courses on the MS website.

 

I could probably do the same thing through their online providers, or just learn the stuff myself with the help of the relevant text books and labs and then take the exam.

 

I'd like to spend my money on Comptia's security courses, (or similar) if they still run them.

 

I did do a course with Auldhouse a few years back and it was a complete rip off.

 

$3,000 and we sat and listened to the tutor read from a book for the week.

Look in credential manager (control panel) & remove any stored mapped drive passwords
Also , make sure the mapped drive is FULLY removed/disconnected : net use & see what it shows

 

Then remap and use the required login , or use 'net use' to set this up.

Depends on the tutor.. some are like that, some are much better.. luck of the draw thou.. That aside, I've never paid for one of those courses myself, only ever been sent on them by employers.. If I was paying myself I'd totally self learn (I invariably do that in addition to any courses I get sent on anyways.. I have a rack of servers and Cisco gear in my lounge for a reason lol)
