A witty haiku for this particular windows feature.

ABORTED effort:
Close all that you have.
You ask way too much.

Using Microsoft Windows for the past, oh i don’t know, let’s circle it to 20 years, they never cease to amaze me with their built-in functionality “features”.

One of these great features, which i recently stumbled upon, is that the user is unable to map two different shares on the same server using two different sets of credentials.

More particularly, when you try to map a network drive as follows (the same problem occurs when trying to map it via “Windows Explorer”):

C:\net use x: \\SMBSERVER\sharename1 password1 /USER:username1
C:\net use z: \\SMBSERVER\sharename2 password2 /USER:username2

You will receive the following error:

System error 1219 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..

Easy way to circumvent this particular idiocy is to either map those drives by mapping one using the servers IP address and the other one by using it’s host name.

For example:

C:\net use x: \\SMBSERVER\sharename1 password1 /USER:username1
C:\net use z: \\1.2.3.4\sharename2 password2 /USER:username2

Or you can simply map this hosts IP address to two different host names, and use those instead (assuming that the SMBSERVER1 and SMBSERVER2 host names are mapped to the same IP address).

For example:

C:\net use x: \\SMBSERVER\sharename1 password1 /USER:username1
C:\net use z: \\SMBSERVER1\sharename2 password2 /USER:username2
