I have 4 Windows 2003 Servers that at one time was running DFS Roots with the share of Home (domain/share). At the time "I" thought the only way to stop the DFS roots from sharing was to turn off the DFS Service on all the servers.

Which is a VERY Bad thing to do if you didn't know ;o)

The problem I am having though is when I turn on the service the old DFS Root share comes back and gives all my existing shares a problem and they stop working.

I have tried: http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=842218 but everytime I do it gives me a Error 2.

How can I remove this share if DFS is not working?????????


Thanks
Josh

with ADSI, you can manually remove it (domain -> system -> DFS-configuration)
