Change where shares point
Posted on 2006-06-28
I'm looking at a major data move and am facing having to recreate a large number of shares on a windows 2000 file server. We have run out of space on one of our user drives and have just purchased a new larger drive array to store it on. For the innitial data move I plan to do a full backup and restore from tape, which will maintain all permissions.
The problem is that there are a large number of file shares that will need to be recreated. Is there a way to either redirect the existing fileshares to the new location or can someone help me with creating a script to copy, modify and recreate the existing shares?
