When i logged in as a user, andnot as an admin, i figured out that i need some files urgently which is in a network share and i dont have access on the same.
until recently i worked as an admin.... now i am just a user! Oops.... i forgot that i am testing the applciation as a simple user!
how do i access a network share with a different credential in Windows 7 OS machine?
the next best thing i could do was to search in internet, Google, bing.....but surprisingly i dint find the answer so easily.
this is so simple requirement...yet i dont know..... as simple as accessing a network share!, but out of my knowledge store!
after doing some R & D, this is the solution or rather one of the solutions!
1: in Run prompt, type \\server, Right click on the shared folder, then choose "Map Network Drive..."
Check the box that says "Connect using different credentials"
2: click ok and it prompts the user for the credentials to be used for logging in.
3: provide teh same and you are done. in your local machine, access the mapped drive.
Alternative command line:
\\server\public password /user:username /savecred /persistent:yes
