I have a windows7 machine where I connect the network drives with the following command:
> net use t: \\pathname\foldername /user:Username password
However, although this was working for years, it stopped working around 2 months ago. This is the error I am receiving:
System error 86 has occurred
The specified network password is not correct
The server it is trying to connect to is a windows2008 server. We have a lot of other computers connecting correctly, but they are all in the domain. This one I cannot add to the domain because it is on another network.
However, I tried this with a different computer NOT in the domain (with a local account) and it was working. So I am fairly positive that the problem is with the client machine not with the server.
This is what I tried so far:
- synchronizing the clock (it was indeed off in the beginning, but synchronizing did not solve the error)
- setting the LAN Manager Authentication to every single option (and restarting every time)
- the password is definitely correct as it was working with a different machine
Can someone point me in a direction what else I can try? Reinstalling the operating system is unfortunately not an option.
