Multiple Credentials in a Single Windows NT Session

This article was previously published under Q173199
SYMPTOMS
Windows NT allows users to connect to multiple resources using multipleuser credentials but only allows a single user to use a connection.

If you attempt to connect to the same resource with different credentials,you will get an error message stating that the credentials suppliedconflict with an existing set of credentials. If you attempt this operationfrom an MS-DOS command line, you receive the following error:

System error 1219 has occurred.
CAUSE
Windows NT will attempt to use the same virtual circuit even if a differentset of credentials is supplied because the resource name is identical.
RESOLUTION
Provide the TCP/IP address of the computer instead of the computer name.
MORE INFORMATION
It is possible to use multiple user credentials to connect to the sameresource on Windows NT when TCP/IP is used as the protocol to establish theconnection.

If you connect to the same resource but use the TCP/IP address of the hostinstead of the computer name, you will be able to connect to the sameresource with a different set of credentials.

Example:

net use * \\dabears\utils /U:raydev net use * \\10.100.57.1\utils /U:administrator
