Hi,

When i try to access the share \\Test1 below error displays.

"The user name could not be found"

The share is form EMC NAS & permission has been given to access the share,
but still i get the error "The user name could not be found".

Thanks & Regards,
Maghesh

\\Test1 is not a share; it is a machine name. \\Test1\Sharename would be a
share.

You can execute the command \\Test1 from the "Start/Run" box but you cannot
execute it from a Command Prompt.

Try from command prompt:
net use n: \\Test1\NAS /user:TARGET\User
where 'TARGET' = domain or target server where user is defined

This is getting a little confusing. First you wrote
"When i try to access the share \\Test1"
and then you agreed that \\Test1 is not a share but a machine name.

Later on you wrote
"When i run from command prompt"
and then you wrote
"I was running the \\Test1 from "Start/Run" boxes"
which again is contradictory.

On top of these obvious problems I have to say that I know nothing about NAS
shares. I recommend you start another thread and observe the following
points:
- Put the word "NAS Shares" into the Subject line in order to attract the
NAS experts.
- Word your post carefully in order to avoid confusion and contradictions.
- Post the command or method you use when trying to map a share.
- Run some tests with ordinary shares to ensure that your syntax is correct.
