Ok, this is very basic, but I am new to networking. My understanding is that mapping network drives on clients in a particular domain is client dependent. In other words, if I map on my PC connection to drive X, and then later I log in on another PC in the same network, I would have to map the drive on that PC too if I want to access shared drive X.
One of my users told me that when she logs to other PCs with her log in credentials, that she is able to access the drives from those PCs. She pointed to me that her employee was mapped to share drives on his PC, but when he logged in on another PC, he could not access it (I had to map). "How come?" she asked. "When I log in on this PC, I am connected, but when he loggs, he is not.."
Please confirm or not, that access to share drives is client based and not user based (assuming of course that user was given access rights in the first based).
