Windows 7: Cannot map network disk

Cannot map network disk

I have NAS, problem is that I cannot map network disk in NAS

Command:

Code:
net use u: \\192.168.1.5\home

Output:

Code:
System error 59 has occured.        

An unexpected network error occurred.


I am using Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit, NAS is on same LAN. I tried map it from another computer in same network and it works, but it doesn't work on my PC.

I tried:

- disable firewall
- ping NAS - success
- login into NAS webadmin - success
- change Network security: LAN Manager authentication level to Send LM & NTLM - use NTLMv2 session security if negotiated in Computer Configuration/Windows Settings/Security Settings/Local Policies/Security Options using gpedit.msc
- create new key Smb2 in
HKLM:\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanServer\Parameters to
0 and 1 (second try)
- create new key EnableDfsLoopbackTargets in HKLM:\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Mup\Parameters with value 1

Thank you

In order for network shares to be mapped into drives and accessible within Windows services, you need to login as the NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM account. To do this, download the Sysinternals Suite from Microsoft, and unzip it to a directory, say C:\TEMP
The following steps assume that you've unzipped SysInternals to C:\TEMP and all the executables are in there.
  1. Launch a command prompt as Administrator.
  2. CD \TEMP
  3. psexec -i -s cmd.exe
    This launches a new command prompt window, and step 4 should be performed in that new window.
  4. net use Z: \\servername_OR_IP\sharedfolder /u:username /persistent:yes
    Provide the credentials of a user having access to the shared folder.
  5. Create a script that runs on computer startup that has only line 4 in it acccording to Microsoft's article: Assign Computer Startup scripts.
If you need to remove it,
  1. Launch a command prompt as Administrator.
  2. CD \temp
  3. psexec -i -s cmd.exe
    This launches a new window. Step 4 should be entered in that window.
  4. net use Z: /delete

If mapping through the USER share, as in "net use p: \\server1\user\%username%" the domain users need to have Full Control on the USER SHARE. For NTFS permissions, they need READ permissions on the parent USER folder, but do not let that permission propogate to subfolders or all users will be able to browse other users' home folders. Then of course, the user will need Full Control of his own home folder.

Lastly, did you create the user home folders in ADUC / Properties / Profile / Home Directory? If so, that will create the home folder with the proper NTFS permissions on the home folder itself. You can also assign the drive letter on the same dialogue and may not need the net use command.
