Windows 7: reconnect network drive on a mixed LAN

26 Aug 2010   #1

Windows 7 Professional 32bit
reconnect network drive on a mixed LAN

I have a network of Windows 7 computers connecting to a Mac OSX shared folder.

In every client I map that folder into a network drive, and I would like every client to automatically connect to that drive without entering the credentials again.

I defined users in the Mac system with the same usernames passwords as in the PCs

Everything works as expected except for the fact that every time a PC starts a session Windows 7 shows a message saying that it can't reconnect to the network drive. Then it asks for the login credentials and it connects normally.

Of course when I log in I tick the 'remember credentials' option in the login dialog but this doesn't seem to have any effect...

Thanks for your feedback!

BTW: From Windows XP Professional I have no such problem
