How to fix “A specified logon session does not exist. It may already have been terminated” 2


 

After changing my internal subnet I ran into an issue connecting to my NAS devices. Ofcourses I changed the IP addresses but on some devices I couldn’t reach them any longer.

After some “googling”I found that many more people have runned into this problem. Some of them found their solution in changing the Local Security Settings, Network access: Do not allow storage of passwords and credentials for network authentication. I had to change this to Disabled. (Using this option previous or old passwords are not used any longer, but I didn’t change the password so it had to be something else)

My solution was:

– Launch the “Credential Manager” in Windows 10 (search for it in the start menu)
– Open “Windows Credentials”
– Click “Add a Windows credential”

– Launch the “Credential Manager” in Windows 10 (search for it in the start menu)
– Open “Windows Credentials”
– Click “Add a Windows credential”
Internet or Network Address: \\servername (replace with the Netbios-name of your cloudstation, or use IP)
User name: servername\username (replace with netbios-name and the username you are connecting with)
Password: Self-explanitory
Delete old settings with the same IP address.
