How can I force a net use command to remember the credentials to use for a server?

A. Ordinarily, you're prompted for credentials when you access a remote server that's outside of your regular account domain. However, if you use the /savecred switch with the net use command, it will prompt for the credentials to use and store the credentials for any future connection, as the following example shows:

net use * \\savdaldc02\temp /savecred
