Tried to Implement DFS, then Removed DFS and now //Server/share is inacessable
Posted on 2004-09-26
I was playing around with DFS, created a Domain Root for Team (which is also the name of a share on one of our machines that links to G:\Team on that machine). Below that are some other folders, like Team Folders (also shared individually) that house the file shares for individuals. Now, after creating the root and then removing it (ie no more DFS), the Team share is completely unaccessible from clients, who receive the message:
\\Server\Team refers to a location that is unavailable. It could be on a hard drive on this computer, or on a network. Check to make sure the disk is properly inserted...yadayadayada
I have tried removing the Team share and rebooting the machine and then putting it back on, but clients still receive the message as if the share is not there. Other shares do not appear to be affected.
Is DFS somehow persistant? What's going on? How do I get my old share back?
Hope you can help...
