Time Restrict Specific Shares in Win 2003

Is there a way to stop sharing a specific share without resticting the person's logon time?  And then reshare it a few hours later.

I have many network shares, and I need to restrict one specific share during a backup period, thus closing all of the connections to the files.

But I don't want to restrict a person's ability to use the rest of the network during this time.

thanks

What backup utillity are you using?  You should be using one that has the ability to use a volume shadow service, or open file option.  Disabling and enabling shares is not pratical and can cause file corruption if resources are still open.

If you must unshare and reshare the resource, look into writing a batch file and adding it to the scheduled tasks.  You can use the "net share" command to delete and recreate the shares.  Check out the switches from a command line to determine which are proper for your needs.

I am using Veritas 9.0.

It using the open file agent, but the large PST files (mail archives) come back as "corrupted" if the file was open during backup and something changes, like automatically file e-mail, or something like.

I will just force logout for 1 minute just be for the backup.  99% of the time the person isn't really there, just not logged off.
