When I create a hidden share on a Windows 2000 server, being a member server or a domain controller, it does not retain the share.  If I create regular shares they are retained, just the hidden shares that do not.  This includes the IPC$ share.


I just want to know why they aren’t retaining the hidden shares.  Hidden shares are how we share all the P drives and Sasi.  I know a work around for the P drives but it is kind of a pain in the rear.

Anything you guys come up with will be great.
