You Cannot Access Drive Letters Mapped by Others in Separate Telnet Sessions

Updated: November 16, 2007

Applies To: Windows Server 2008

This problem typically occurs when multiple users are logged on to a Telnet server. One user maps one or more network resources to drive letters, and another user expects those drive letters to be available to all users on the Telnet server.

Drive letters for mapped network resources are maintained on a per user basis, and are not shared across user accounts. Only physical drives attached to the Telnet server are available to all users, depending on their security permissions.

Each user must employ the net use or net user command to map network drives to drive letters individually, according to their own needs.
