Unable to map drive on seperate subnet of Windows 2008 Server

On our current Windows 2003 Server I'm able to map a drive to a shared 
folder from a workstation from a different subnet.  Even if this machine 
is not a member of the Domain, I can add the servers IP address and 
machine name to the hosts file.  If I have a user account setup on the 
server I can then pass the username and password credentials when 
mapping the drive and everything is OK.

When migrating to the new server (Windows 2008 R2) I try to do the same 
thing, it gives me the following error:

The network path \\servername\share could not be found.

Is there something I need to do in a Group Policy?

I've tried adding subnets under Active Directory Sites and Services to 
no avail.

Any help would be most appreciated.

> The network path \\servername\share could not be found.

Try using the IP address and specifying the full user credentials:

\\ip.address.of.server\share /user:domain\username

Replace /user:domain\username with the appropriate domain or machine name. 
As in, you have a machine called "someserver" on IP adress with a 
share named 'home' and it's not part of your current domain named 
"somedomain".  To connect to it you'd need to have an account on the 
"someserver" machine, let's say that one's named 'shawn'.  You'd use:

net use \\\home /user:someserver\shawn

If you didn't specify the "someserver\shawn" credentials the connection 
would be made with whatever credentials you're currently using on your 
machine.  Since the 'someserver' machine isn't part of the domain it's 
likely going to reject the connection attempt.  This is correct behavior for 
it.  There's an exception where the system will try to connect using the 
same username and password, but don't rely on this.  Just specify the full 
credentials, that way you'll *know* what it's trying to use.

Be very careful about making edits to the HOSTS file.  Those tend to get 
forgotten about and come back to haunt you later.  Better to get things 
integrated into the DNS when possible.  That way all the layers of client 
software "just work".  You can add hosts to an AD integrated DNS without the 
machine being a member of the domain, even when they're in different 
subnets.  That's just DNS 101.
