System Error 1240 Has Occurred.

You see the error message “Err Msg: System Error 1240 Has Occurred. The Account is Not Authorized to Login from This Station”, when attempting to mount an SMB network share.

Applies to:
Iron Networks Products: IronPOD Family of Products, Microsoft CPS
Software: Windows Storage Spaces, Windows 2012 R2
Hardware Components: NA

Symptom

When connecting to a network share and the share name is incorrect, you will receive a very confusing error message.

net use x: \\ip2-Stor1-SFS\VMImages

System error 1240 has occurred.
The account is not authorized to log in from this station

Solution

Selecting the correct share name (VMImages1 instead of VMImages) resolves this.

net use x: \\ip2-Stor1-SFS\VMImages1
The command completed successfully.

This is not a bug, but the error message makes this error quite confusing to decipher.
