How to know what user was used to a mapped drive

I have a windows NT 4.0 workstation.

The workstation has about 15 mapped drives.

One of those mapped drives (to a share on a windows 2000 server), doesn't work, it says that the account that was used is either locked our or etc....

I would like to know how to display what user account was used to map to a share.

For example, if you go to mapped drives (on windows NT), and under "connect as", you type a different username, how do you find out what username was used (not necessarly with the password, just the username).

Do you understand the questions, any help is welcome!

Daniel:

Have you tried looking at the Windows 2000 Server (or can you try?) to see if any of the accounts are locked out?

Seeing which users are allowed to access that share could narrow it down a bit. Can you check the share properties?

Start, Settings, Control Panel, Server Manager, shares.
