Map drive problems RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey everyone,

    SharePoint 2010 Foundations.

    I'm running into a problem where I can't map a document library as a drive on Windows 7/XP.

    The only way I can map a document library, is to make sure I check off "Remember me" at the login screen of SharePoint. If I do that, I can go into Start/Computer and map to a document library no problem.

    Any advice would be fantastic.

  • There is an issue with WebDav and Windows 7 that I've come across sometimes. It causes authentication issues and very slow transfers.

    If you pop into Internet Explorer and bring up internet options, Connections, Lan Settings. Look for the Automatic Configuration box at the top and check whether "Automatically Detect Settings" is ticked.

    If it is, remove that tick and then reboot the machine.

    Then try mapping again.

    Paul.

  • Hi Amacidia,

    There are two different method for drive mapping. One is using "My Network Places" and second is using "Windows Explorer".

    Try to map the drive using "Windows Explorer" . Here are the steps

    Select Tools => Map Network Drive

    Select your drive letter for the Location

    Under Folder : enter your url to your document library such as “http://localhost/Shared Documents“

    click on “Connect using a different name” and enter the user credentials.

    Click on Finish

    Here is a link with screen shot, to help you finish this task.

  • Hi Amacidia:

    The users belong to the same domain?

  • Hey Arun,

    That is what am I currently doing.

    It only works after I get the user to login to the SharePoint site (making sure to check off remember me).

  • Hey Miguel,

    Our SharePoint server is hosted offsite from a dedicated server provider. We are currently using forms based authentication.

    Not sure if that answers your question. We have a domain at our main office (where the users are accessing from) but they are not accessing the SharePoint site with domain credentials.
