MS 2003 Small Business Server: How to correctly set up shares?
Posted on 2004-11-15
I just set up an MS 2003 Small Business Server. Will be adding the clients tommorrow. I looked at the add shares area of the management area. First it seems like there are a bunch of shares there already. (i assume system shares?)
1. Will user access level be per share only? Meaning is it easy to give a group/user access to part of a share? Or does it always have the be the whole thing.
2. HOw do shares show up on the client computer once they are part of the domain? Are they autmatically mapped to a hard drive? Are they mapped even if the user doesn't have access to it?
3. Where does the server put the shares on the hard drive? or is that up to me? I just want to keep it organized for backup purposes.
4. User user gets a private home directly when settings them up. I set "my documents" to map to this. Is this now the only way they have access? OR is it mapped to another drive? Is this the best way to go about this? Of should i set "H" to home or something?
