How can I share a folder on windows 2003 cluster shared drive.At the moment when I am sharing a folder, Users can access the folder.But when a fail over occurs I need to share the folder from the 2nd Server too.I have to do this only the 1st time.Later on it works fine.
I guess there should be way so that I don't need to share the 2nd server.
