Question: No matter what I try, the Network drive cannot be mapped in Windows 11. The error says "The mapped network drive could not be created because the following error has occurred: The specified network name is no longer available".
What is going on with Windows 11 Network Mapping capabilities?

Answer: First you need to find out the details of the error by starting a program called Event Viewer on your Windows 11 Computer. There is a possibility that the Firewall or DNS Server is blocking the communication to the Network Drive.
1. Restart your computer
2. Based on the Error Details, troubleshoot from your findings
I found the following error when I was investigating: "Guidance: The client cannot resolve the server address in DNS or WINS. This issue often manifests immediately after joining a computer to the domain, when the client's DNS registration may not yet have propagated to all DNS servers. You should also expect this event at system startup on a DNS server (such as a domain controller) that points to itself for the primary DNS. You should validate the DNS client settings on this computer using IPCONFIG /ALL and NSLOOKUP."
