We are using samba on Unix and getting this error.
We have both win 2000 and XP.  I get this error on XP.   Never had the
problem on Win98 and previous versions.
An error occurred while reconnecting O: to \\dev\growrg
Microsoft Windows Network :  The local device name is already in use.
The connection has not been restored.

We can fix the problem by removing all mapped drives, reboot and remap.
We have to do this every day.  I want to fix this problem.

In regedit we changed the enableplaintextpassword to the value of 1 to
get the connection.

I have searched the samba archive and internet with no success .

Thank you,
