    Map network drive


    Using Vista Business, I'm unable to map a drive on our LAN. The computer sees
    the network server and shares, but when I try to map a share, I get a dialog
    box requesting username and password. After completing that, I get a second
    box showing server/user then a blank for password. When I fill that out and
    enter, I get an error message Logon unsuccessful: Windows is unable to log
    you on. Be sure that your username and password are correct.

    It's very frustrating because I did a clean reinstall from XP.

    Are you in an Active Directory domain? Was the Vista computer properly
    joined to the domain?

    Thank you, Kerry, but we don't use Active Directory. I was able to find the
    solution here: Workgroup Password
