    Hi again all,

    I am wondering if I can assign share to a folder on a workstation/workstations from SBS2003?

    EG: I would like to share C:/Program Files on five workstations, can I do it from SBS2003, or do I have to manually sit at each machine to do it?


    Thanks in advance,


    Heeter

    If you are on the server itself, you can try to remotely manage each PC and then create a new share.

    From the server, try the following:

    Right Click on my computer, select manage.
    Under the Action Menu, click Connect to another Computer
    Enter Computer name and connect
    On the new PC, expand the Shared Folders section
    While in the Shares, click new share

    That should do it for you.
