net use /user:domain\username password?

11 posts in this topic

When i "net use l: \\ip\share /user:domain\username" and press the enter key, it asks for my password, and i type it.. it works fine..

when i try to "net use l: \\ip\share /user:domain\username mypassword" or "net use l: \\ip\share mypassword /user:domain\username" i get an error.

The goal of this would be to map the drive in 1 line so i can use it in a batch script.

If i can do it in two lines via a batch script that would work also but i am not sure how.

Any help would be great!

what is the error it gives you? "bad username or password?"

net use Z: \\ip\share /user:domain\username password

that will work fine, just tested it in a batch with 3 shares, how about using the UNC equivelent of the IP?

Try putting you password inside of double-quotes. If that still dows not work, change the password to only be a combination of upper & lowercase letters and numbers.

I ran into the same problem when I had a caret (^) in my password. I recommend trying jftuga's suggestion to see if it's related to a special character being interpreted as something other than a string character.

is this being used in a login script in a domain? or just a workgroup?

net use l: \\192.168.x.x /user:domain\administrator "password"

should work perfect for domain situations

and net use l: \\192.168.x.x /user\administrator "password"

that should work for workgroups

(assuming that the local admin password on the one you are mapping the drive from is the word "password")

let us know any errors you get

thanks

Hi Mordac

the following is right:

net use l: \\192.168.x.x /user:domain\administrator "password"

if the password however contains a special character, try typing it twice, for example:

pw: "tr45#tr" should be "tr45##tr"

let us know

I am trying to access a resource (map a hidden share) as a different user and password. I've tried all iterations including * of

net use Z: \\server\share$ /user:domain\username password

and get

System error 1219 has occurred.

Multiple connections to a server or shared resource by the same user, using more

than one user name, are not allowed. Disconnect all previous connections to the

server or shared resource and try again..

When I use net use without any password, it maps the drive, but I can't access it because I have no rights.

Is it significant that my password is password?

From the error message you provided, it sounds like you are already connected to the server under alternate credentials. Try disconnecting from the server prior to attempting to map a drive under the other credentials. The following batch file will disconnect all mapped drives, that are not in use, then perform the drive mapping under the given credentials.


@echo off

set "svrname=server"
set "share=share$"
set "usr=administrator"
set "pwd=password"

for /f "tokens=2" %%# in ('net use^|find /i "\\%svrname%"') do net use %%# /delete>nul

net use l: \\%svrname%\%share% /user:%usr% "%pwd%">nul

disconnect (Z) before:

net use Z: /delete

make mapping:

net use Z: \\server\folder$ /user:user@domain password

P.S: this command displays the password on the screen.

att,

Yes you will get this error if you try to make 2 different connections to a single resource using two different logins. There isn't any reason why you would need two logins. If you can't add the correct permissions to the first account or the second, create a new account that can access both items.
