Auto-authenticate to a domain network share

SeñorAmorSeñorAmor !!!Registered User regular
Howdy, folks. Hoping one of you can help me out with a network share issue I'm having.

I have a domain and three servers and NAS on it. The NAS has a network share that is password protected and uses Active Directory to authenticate. If I try to access the share from two of the three computers in an explorer window:


it works just fine. On the third server, however, it prompts me for a username and password. If I type in a user and password it connects just fine, however, I want it to auto-authenticate based on the AD user currently logged in. I am using the same AD user on all three servers, and only the one has a connection problem.

This is my first foray into Windows Server and AD, so I'm sure I have a setting wrong somewhere on the 3rd server, but I don't know what it is. I don't remember making any changes to that one server that I didn't make to the others, but apparently I did. Any help that you guys can provide would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

    Does that server have permissions on the share and folder/files? Maybe it's a permissions thing, not an authentication thing?
