Why I can't connect to the server any more?

I have a problem that can't connect to the server (Windows Server 2019) any more. I take there the File history of the computers.

I made an error when I made a user account, say userj, to that server, but I spelled it wrong, it should have been userv. I changed the name in user account. Some time all was OK, but later I couldn't connect to the server any more.

Now when I try to connect, the userj is suggested. Any way I don't have that account any more in the server. If I try to use another account userv, I am told that I already have an account.

I tried with another server, where I don't take File history, and I could contact that server and see the shared folder.

    Assuming a local account, the simplest solution may be to delete / recreate the user account here.

    Thank you Patrick

    I reinstalled Windows server and deleted the user account. Then I made a new accunt but the result was the same. I wonder where that userj exists because it's always asked when I try to klick the server.

    I get the following error message: 42520-server-connection-problem.png

    Hi again Patrick

    Unfortunately that net use * /delete didn't solve the problem. Now I have to use it always when I start a new session on any computer.
