I get a 'System error 5 has occurred. Access is Denied' error when I do: net use t: \\server\transfer /user:bpm_r bpm_rxt

However, I get a successful map if I do: net use t: \\server\transfer /user:bpm_r ... followed by a prompt for a password 'bpm_rxt' and type it in manually

  • Does your password contain any characters that need to be escaped? – Ryan Ries Apr 3 '13 at 19:36

Formatting the user id as: DOMAIN\user seemed to fix the issue.

  • what does that mean? – Nik-Lz Mar 9 '18 at 5:34
