hi i have set up log shipping successfully in sql 2005.  I am also the Admin on both boxes
Assume my Server A is primary and Server B is Secondary --- This works fine .
But when i try to make Server A Secondary and Server A Primary  .. keeping all shares and everythnig else same.. i get an access denied.
the funny this is that Server B replies that \\ServerB\Sharename has denied access.  

How can a server deny itself access even though i am the admin. any ideas????

Access denied is the sql error in it's entirity?
Do you mean try to make server B seconadary? You have A as the primary and secondary in your question.

Does the NT account have write permissions to the share on server B? Check security and sharing

i am admin on both the boxes and yes accounts have full permissions on the share. Also gave 'everyone' full access to the share but its still says access denied.

I think u misunderstood the question.   i have two scenarios. 1) server A - primary and server B -secondary/standby server.
scenario 2) server A - secondary server and server B primary server.

Scenario 1 works fine which tells me that my log shipping and shares works fine.
But in scenario 2) i get access denied.

Ahh ok, initially you said... "But when i try to make Server A Secondary and Server A Primary " which threw me.
