### The network folder specified is currently mapped using a different name and password

Getting "The network folder specified is currently mapped using a different name and password. To connect using a different user name and password, first disconnect any existing mappings to this network share"?

This happened to me after a failed attempt to map a path I had no access to with my regular user. Selecting to map it with different credentials kept on complaining with this error message. The solution was to:
1. Run 'net use' and if the path is present run 'net /delete \\path\to\resource' and/or 'net /delete $DRIVE_LETTER:' 2. Run 'runas /profile /user:$DOMAIN\$USER cmd' for any privileged$USER you have used before. Hopefully is not administrator ;-)
3. From the new command prompt pertaining to the privilege user follow the first step
4. Try to map the drive again as you would usually do (in my case using the "Connect using different credentials")

### tail: inotify cannot be used, reverting to polling: Too many open files

Run 'ps -ef' and look for some processes that might be unusually big in number.
