windows bypass network folder currently mapped different user

  1. If you try to connect to a share on a file server you already have connections
  2. or mapped drives to, using alternate credentials, Windows displays:
  4.         The network folder specified is currently mapped using a different user name
  5.         and password.
  6.         To connect using a different user name and password, first disconnect any
  7.         existing mappings to this network share.
  10. It is sometimes possible to bypass this by:
  12. - create a DNS alias (if you have access to DNS), pointing a different name to
  13.   the file server
  15. or
  17. - create an entry in the hosts file, pointing to the IP address of the file
  18.   server but with a different hostname that you make up
  20. Then, connect to the desired share using the net use command from a cmd
  21. window:
  23. net use r: \\altnamefileserver\e$ /user:domain_admin@examplewindowsdomain.com
