I tried to search this topic but didn't find the exact scenario I have.
I configured my win 7 machine in a way it should map a drive to a folder in XP. The share works and I can see the files without a problem.
The issue however is related to the fact that after a boot, the share is NOT connected. However, clicking on file explorer and clicking on the map drive, does connect to the remote machine. In other words, I don't need to provide any credentials, just click on the map drive and it will work but I have to always do that manual step. Any way to automatically configure this setting?
editing: Believe the following information might be relevant:
1) The drive I am trying to map to is on windows XP machine 2) My "LAN Manager authentication level" is set to "not defined"
The thing that is different in my scenario relative to all the other posting is, that i am not being asked to enter user name and password each time. Its enough that I click on the drive from Windows Explorer and it connects.
