Making a redundent windows share
Posted on 2011-05-10
I have 2 shared folders on one of my servers. Lets say the path is \\Server1\Share1 and \\Server1\Share2
When that server goes down, it obviously takes the connection to the shares down as well. The path to the shares are mapped to each of the workstations.
Is there a way to create another share on another server and somehow give it the same path name so that when Server1 goes down, the users will still be able to access the data that was on share that was mapped to their computers? Sorry for the confusion, i may be articulating this the wrong way. Basically i want it where if the server that houses my main share goes down, users will not affected.
