# Windows – Access Samba share with different credentials in Windows 7

sambawindows 7

Windows 7 64-bit. Logged in to the windows machine with cached networks credentials.

I'm trying to access a samba share on the current network. The Windows machine is logged in to "itself" with cached credentials from a different network domain.

When I try accessing \server\share on my current network, I immediately get the message that I don't have permissions to access the share. I get no login prompt, so I'm guessing that windows insist on using the credentials I'm logged in with to access the share, which naturally won't work.

I even managed to "add a new network credential" somewhere, where I added the server and share, and the correct username and password. Didn't help, not even after rebooting the machine. And now I cannot for the life of it find where I did it.

Any ideas on how to get around this?

net use \\server Username * /savecred
