Multiple connections to a server or shared resource
If you are systems administrator and you are using separate administrative accounts for Admin access to domain servers you have probably run into this issue.
If you access the server resource / share with your domain account, the share will open, but you are not able to browse folders on that share because you need and Administrative permission for that.
Therefore you try to access the share by using Admin share like \\Servername\D$ and once you enter your Admin credentials you will receive the following error message:
You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions.
Multiple connections to a server or shared resource by the same user….
To fix this please do the following. Open Command Prompt ant type:
You will see a mapped share that you have accessed with your domain account without the drive letter. To delete this share use this command:
net use /delete \\servername\share
This should fix “Multiple Connections” issue and you should now be able to use the Admin share ($) to access the server.
