    Can't map drive, says the resource is already in use with this user


    I have a Linux File-server that I have had the M: drive mapped to for almost 2 years. I recently rebuilt my windows 10 pro build 3 weeks ago, and one of my first steps was remapping the drive, and that worked as it has before.

    But just this Saturday, a program was trying to save a file there and it said the drive was invalid. This is typical when I reboot and I have yet to try and open he drive and supply my credentials (they were not saved even though I always check save credentials)

    Once I supply the password, and the file explorer pops open in the root of the share, the program that needed the drive suddenly is happy and things go forward.

    This time that did not happen. So I disconnected the drive, and tried to remap it. When I was prompted for my credentials and supplied them, I was told that it was unable to map this drive using the credentials provided because this resource was already in use with those credentials. O.o

    I don't have any other mapped drives to that server, or to another server in my home domain that would use my home domain credentials. So I thought I fresh reboot would help clear up the issue.. It did not.

    How might I tell how windows thinks I am already using this resource so I can clear it and just start a new?

    The SAMBA share is \\mondo\data (Ubuntu 18 LTS Server) using the SAMBA NTLM domain\user nickellson.com\grimm and this share would be the only thing I would use on this server, and would have to be using that username.

    Additional troubleshooting...

    I tried wiping all mapped drives with "net use * /del"
    C:\Users\nicko>net use
    New connections will be remembered.

    There are no entries in the list.

    As my user (and nothing shows running cmd.exe as admin either.)

    But I still get

    C:\Users\nicko>net use m: \\Mondo\Data /user:nickellson.com\grimm /persistent:yes
    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.

    Welcome to TenForums

    I'm not a Linux user, but it appears this problem can be fixed on the server, not at the Windows client.

    First off, use "net use /d * /y" to clean up the old connections. Then the following: Windows 10. To remove previously cached/saved credentials on your workstation using the Windows Credential Manager under Windows 10, perform the following steps: Press the Windows key on the keyboard or click the Windows Start icon. Start typing Credential Manager, and select the Credential Manager icon.

    Also make sure to restart smbd and nmbd on the Linux Server, by using "sudo /etc/init.d/smbd restart" and "sudo /etc/init.d/nmbd restart".

    I would suggest looking up how to use Net Login scripts to automatically map and mount the share when you log into windows.
