All Mac office running Snow Leopard Server.  Xserve with Promise Vtrak Raid via Fiber.
Have 3 Windows 7 clients i want to back up to the server. Made a folder on the server, Windows clients can see but I cannot get the back up client in windows to initialize.
Any ideas?

Let me paraphrase:

Windows 7 Users can see (read/write) to your Mac Shares.  Your only remaining issue it setting up Windows 7 Backup client?

Have you mapped your network shares to Drive Letters?  This might help with windows backup client finding the share.
