i can see both pcs on network share from master dc, but when I right click to share a particular partition ie F:\ it states it is already shared so I cannot share.  When logging on from other pc I can find Master dc but only couple of folders showing?

im using admin account, I can share my documents on the actual master dc although it does not show on host server pc that is already connected to domain and showing in dns, dhcp.

ive done a gpupdate /force

but on host win 2003 server i can see both servers but when i open folder for master dc it only shows 'netlogon and sysvol' folder, but not the 'my documents' ive just shared.

ive stopped and started dns and dhcp

the only thing i cannot see is that in AD in the 'computers' folder it does not show the new server attached.

so i am going to reboot server first of all

Please don't take offense if some of these seem obvious. Please reply with answers.

1. PCs are members of the correct Domain?

2. What operating system are you running on the Domain Controller?

3. What is the operating systems on the PCs?

4. Do you see the PCs in the "network" list for your domain?

5. Are you putting a "$" symbol after the share name? If so, this makes them "Hidden".

6. Try creating a folder on the partition then sharing that, instead of trying to share the entire partition.

1. yes pc is on domain as only 1 server 2. win 2003 is running on dc
3. win 2003 is also running on other just for test purposes as just testing something simple and just wish to copy a few files across this way.
4. yes both show on both side in network share as expected, these are my weak areas
5. as the folder on master dc is shared by default without my changes yes it shows already ($) in place so when i click permissions it does not allow me to share their
6. create a folder on partition - good idea

- more than likely it may well be i will have to create a folder in the partition!
-  but was l wondering why the other server did not appear in AD folder under 'Computers' on anywhere else just like everything else normally does.

Oh well I will have to re-install everything again tomorrow.:(( thanks for your assistance!!
