Configuring dpm 2010 for end user recovery on window server 2003

We are backing up a folder on a windows server 2003 x64 server with dpm2010.  I have expanded the AD schema already and the protection group shows with no errors.  Restore points are being created and are good.  I cannot however find previous versions on the server when I look to restore files.  They can be restored from the console but I don't see the previous versions on the server being backed up.  The protection group is configured for servers, I setup a test computer with windows 7 and installed the client and was able to recover files with the group setup as client.  I added my account explicitly to the administrators group on the file server.  Is it possible to setup a file server so you can see previous versions on it as you would a client pc?  I would like to allow support staff to be able to retrieve previous versions on the file server without giving them access to the server where the console is installed.  Any help is greatly appreciated.

I was able to figure out the issue here.  I was browsing the share incorrectly, when browsing to \\protectedServerName\share$ previous versions showed.  When browsing to \\protectedServerName\D$\shared\ShareName I could not see any versions.  I was able to get this by running net shares from command line and piping to a text file, there you could see the share names without the drive letter.  The protection group is setup for servername\driveletter\folder but to access previous versions I needed to browse to \\servername\sharename$

I was able to figure this out after a looking at net shares and seeing that the dpm server was mapped the share as \\servername\share$ instead of how it is setup in the protection group as \\servername\D$\shared\shares.  Browsing to \\servername\share$ showed the previous version on the file server.
