I am trying to Bring all of our shares (shared folders ) on our file servers into AD Users and Computers. Rather then have to create each share individually is there an easier way to import of our shares on a specific server into and OU in AD Users and Computers ?

Are you trying to publish shared folders in AD?  You can try the script here  http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee176590.aspx
...haven't fully tested that myself
Thanks

Yes, I am trying to publish shared folders in AD. I want to publish existing shared folders from my file server.

Your best bet is to probably create a logon script that maps the shares for you. So, when the client logs on, the file folders are mapped. Then, go into AD users and computers to tell each user what sets of mapped shares they get by telling them what logon script they run. Do you like that idea?
