Consider the following scenario:
You have a server on a network that runs the ClearPath MCP operating system from Unisys.
On this network, the credentials that users use to access the MCP server differ from the logon credentials that they use to log on to the domain.
A user accesses a network share on the MCP server by using a Windows Vista-based client computer.
To access this network share, this user types the Uniform Naming Convention (UNC) path of the MCP server.
In this scenario, Windows Vista does not enumerate the share list on the server. However, if the user accesses a network share on the MCP server by typing the Uniform Naming Convention (UNC) path together with the share name, the user can access the network share.
For example, if the user tries to access the share by typing the following UNC path, the user cannot obtain the share list on the server:
However, the user can access the share by typing the UNC path together with the share name, as in the following example:
In these examples, ServerName and ServerFQDNname represent one of the following:
The fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the server
The IP address of the server
The NetBIOS name of the server
This issue does not occur on a Windows XP-based client computer.
The Unisys MCP server does not support Remote Administration Protocol named pipes. Therefore, Windows Vista has to create a new connection to enumerate the share list. To do this, Windows Vista uses the user's logon credentials instead of the credentials that user types when they map the network drive. However, in this situation, the credentials that user types when they map the network drive are required. Therefore, this problem occurs.
In the same situation, Windows XP uses the credentials that user types when they map the network drive. Therefore, this problem does not occur on a Windows XP-based computer.
