Multiple Connections To A Server Or Shared Resource By The Same User, Using More Than One User Name

When mapping a network drive you get the following errors:

The network folder specified is currently mapped using a different user name and password.

To connect using a different user name and password, first disconnect any existing mappings to this network share.

You then get the following error after clicking OK to the previous error:

The mapped network drive could not be created because the following error has occurred:

Multiple connections to a server or shared resource by the same user, using more than one user name, are not allowed. Disconnect all previous connections to the server or shared resource and try again.

There is no fix to this as Microsoft say that it is by design (even if you don’t have multiple connections to a server or resource by the same user), but there is a workaround.

This is to use the IP address of the server to map the drive instead of the dns name. Alternatively, you can get around the Multiple connections to a server error by creating a new DNS name for the resource (such as a CNAME).
