Windows XP and disappearing shares
Posted on 2009-04-02
We are running a Novell network with Windows XP workstations. Our problem is, we are trying to share a folder between 3 workstations in a classroom. We are sharing the folder on one of the XP workstations and accessing that share from the other 2 XP workstations. We have enabled simple file sharing and can share the folder and the workstations can access it. When the sharing workstation is rebooted is when we have a problem. The folder still shows as being shared, even in the computer management. However when anyone tries to connect it is not there. Then we go into explorer and right click on the shared folder (whick btw has the shared icon on it) and the share has been reset. We can reshare it and it works. This only occurs on a reboot not on a log out and login. We are puzzled by this one and any help you guys could give would be appreciated.
