First, a scenario, then a question:
1. Two Windows 7 computers.
2. Each computer has a user account with the same name, but different passwords.
3. This is necessary because other users can log on remotely to one machine with this user account, but should be locked out of the other.
4. A local user who has access to both accounts tries to access a mapped drive on one machine. The user names are the same, but the passwords are different. Windows gives an error; the local user enters the credentials correctly (same username, but remote machine password) and says "Remember these credentials."
5. Credentials are remembered throughout the duration of the computer session.
6. When the computer is rebooted, the computer forgets the credentials for the mapped drive, and Step 4 starts all over again.
Question: How can the local user save the remote credentials permanently? And is it possible without using Group Policy Preferences, as he is not on a domain?
This is happening right here in my house.
Thanks guys, I appreciate the help in alleviating this annoyance!
