Hi there

Got SBS2003 setup, everythng working fine locally and remotely with 12 clients

I proceeded to change all the admin shares that I didn't want to be viewed by clients by placing a $ after the share names and managed to set the same share level permsiion security etc.

Now when I try and add another user I get an error at the end of the add user wizard, just says cannot add users, cannot create home folder and set disk quota.

Is this because I changed the the share name of the Users folder from 'Users' to 'Users$ - I cant see why this should cause the wizard to fail ???

I've checked the microsoft pages for a solution to this problem and checked the permissions they said to check - all looks good to me though using the following article
